The Benefits of Massage Therapy

Why this resource is helpful:

Quoted From:

"Massage can nearly always improve mental health and attitude, and performance at all levels. Typically a massage will stretch and loosen muscles and connective tissue, improving blood flow throughout the body to help the body remove metabolic waste and infuse the cells and tissues with oxygen and nutrients.Massage also works to simulate the sensory receptors in skin and muscles, which bring attention to areas that have been "cut off" by chronic tension. Massage is known to release endorphins created by the body to reduce pain. Massage helps to unblock and balance the flow of life energy through the human system (known in various cultures as life force, c'hi, prana, ki, kundalini, hara).
