Effects on Muscles and Connective Tissue
Massage aids in muscle relaxation, relieves spasm or cramps, increases range of motion, stretches tissue and positively affects certain scar tissue. Muscles benefit from massage by direct contact and indirectly from improved circulation. The body can more efficiently circulate clean, oxygenated blood and take deoxygenated blood and other wastes, such as lactic acid, to be discarded as waste material.
Healthy muscles are less likely to become injured. Massage improves flexibility and increases range of motion. It may also decrease recovery time after strenuous activity, which can result in less soreness.
Circulatory and Lymph Systems
Massage promotes circulation of blood and lymph by bringing the body into a state of enhanced homeostasis or balance.
Massage tends to decrease tension and anxiety. It has been shown to be useful in relieving depression. It may also promote a positive self-image and sense of self-worth. It relieves fatigue and enhances a general sense of well-being.
