Balanced emotions and relaxed muscles are far better than the byproducts of daily stress. Massaging the body produces an overall feeling of relaxation through sensory preceptors located in the skin and central nervous system allowing the body to disengage from mental stress long enough to restore mind and body balance.
The body is responsible for moving our muscles, tendons and joints through a symphony of well-executed positions. Irregular dietary practices rob the body of necessary nutrients as does tension, tight muscles and stress, which force the body to work harder to achieve balance and coordination. Massage works effectively in reducing stress in the body by returning flexibility and mobility to muscle fibers and connective tissue. Toxins are removed through activation of flow, and stress melts away through the soothing and calming effects on the parasympathetic nerves.
