How does a body massage help?

Massage affects the body as a whole. Massage is well knownto elevate the circulation of blood and the flow of lymph. The mechanicaleffect of rhythmically applied pressure by a Body Massager and movement used inmassage, dramatically increases the rate of blood flow. Also, the stimulationof nerve receptors causes the blood vessels (reflex action) to dilate.

A milky white fluid, lymph, carries waste and impuritiesaway from the tissues and passes through gland-like structures spacedthroughout the lymphatic system, which acts as filtering valve. The lymph doesnot circulate as the blood does, so its movement completely depends on thesqueezing effect of muscle contractions.

Consequently, inactive people fail to stimulate flow of lymph.On the other hand, the stimulation caused by vigorous activity can beoutstripped by the increased waste produced by that activity. Body Massage candramatically aid the movement of lymph in either case.

In order to keep the whole body healthy, the smallest parts of the body, the cells, must be healthy. The individual cells of the body are dependent on an abundant supply of blood and lymph because these fluids supply nutrients and oxygen and eliminates waste and toxin. So, it is easy to understand why good circulation is so important to our health and how Body Massage can be beneficial for the same.
