Massage is known to increase the circulation of blood and flow of lymph. The direct mechanical effect of rhythmically applied manual pressure and movement used in massage can dramatically increase the rate of blood flow. Also, the stimulation of nerve receptors causes the blood vessels (by reflex action) to dilate, which also facilitates blood flow. Kristina Lo (2010).

Through reflexology, which is a “body work technique that uses reflex points on the hands, body and feet” to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanism.  Reflexology is designed to bring the body to balance by applying balance by applying pressure at points corresponding to areas of the body.

For the whole body to be healthy, the sum of its parts — 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 carry away wastes and toxins. So, it is easy to understand why good circulation is so important to our health and why massage can be so beneficial for the entire body due to its effect on circulation alone.
