More about Massage
Massage has many benefits for the human body, and the mind. Physically, it can help loosen muscles, break down adhesions and scar tissue, release trigger points, help your lymphatic system, release restrictions in the fascia and release tender points.
Massage also has an effect on our minds. Massage helps activate our parasympathetic nervous system, decrease levels of stress hormones, and help our muscle relax through decreased feelings of stress and anxiety.
That paragraph probably had some terms that didn't really make sense. You may be wondering, "what the heck does that mean?" You're not alone! This list will give a quick explanation of what those terms mean.
Parasympathetic nervous system: It is part of our nervous system that controls resting and digesting. It helps tell our body to relax
Adhesions: dense collection scar tissue in the muscle
Scar tissue: tough, fibrous, inflexible fiberous material. It is the body trying to repair itself
Trigger Point: a sensitive point on the body that causes referring pain when compressed
Lymphatic system: a network of vessels containing lymph (a fluid that helps our body drain metabolic waste
Fascia: a connective tissue that helps connect the skin to the body
Tender points: an area of tenderness that does not refer pain
