When the muscles are gently pressed, lactic acid is pumped out of the muscles, which contributes to the better functioning of the lymphatic system.
Relax massage has certain health benefits.. Gentle massage stimulates nerve endings in the skin, which leads to the secretion of endorphins. Endorphins are natural analgesics that make us to feel better.
In addition to endorphins, during the relax massage, it comes to the secretion of hormones dopamine and serotonin, which contribute to better health and mood. Studies have shown that, during massage, activity in the right lobe of brain decreases, which is more active in people who are depressed, and activity in the left lobe of brain increases. The left lobe is more active in people who are happy and satisfied.
Relax massage relaxes the body more by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, which is often referred to as the “relaxation and digestion system.“ This results in a reduction of blood pressure, slowing heart rate and increased digestive activity. Relax massage increases blood circulation and stimulates the lymphatic system that regulates toxins in the body.
Reducing blood pressure by massage can reduce the risk of developing anxiety, depression and stress, while at the same time reducing the risk of heart attack or kidney failure.
Stress can cause muscle pain, and relax massage relaxes muscles and reduces the pain. During the relax massage, it would be the best to be quiet, relax and concentrate on breathing and moves of masseur, because that’s how you can experience the massage as a form of meditation.
In addition to effect on nervous system, relax massage also affects the removal of stress hormones (insulin and cortisol) and other toxins caused by everyday problems. By reducing the level of cortisol, the massage positively affects the immune system.
Indulge to the relax massage and you will feel how your mind and the body are starting to relax, and you will start to feel healthier.
