Therapeutic Massage Is Beneficial In Combating Aging

 

Therapeutic massage is effective in combating the negative effects of aging noticed in the middle to late years of life. It helps keep body tissues and basic functions in a more youthful state.

• Enhances tissue elasticity and joint     flexibility

•  Improves blood and lymph circulation

•  Promotes healthy vibrant skin

• Improves immune system functioning

•  Relieves muscle aches and stiffness

Deep massage helps break up the dimples. When combined with a sensible diet and weight loss program, even stubborn fat pockets can be removed.

At the University of Miami School of Medicine’s Touch Research Institute, researchers have found that massage is helpful in decreasing blood pressure in people with hypertension, alleviating pain in migraine sufferers and improving alertness and performance in office workers.

An increasing number of research studies show massage reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion, and increases endorphins (enhancing medical treatment).

Although therapeutic massage does not increase muscle strength, it can stimulate weak, inactive muscles and, thus, partially compensate for the lack of exercise and inactivity resulting from illness or injury. It also can hasten and lead to a more complete recovery from exercise or injury.
