Below are some of benefits of massage therapy
Optimize Your Health - Enhance circulation and general nutrition of muscles
Massage increases blood flow to tissues while they are at rest. Massage also does is opens and dilates the blood vessels which enables nutrients to pass through to muscle tissue more easily. The optimized supply of nutrients and oxygen help the body to rebuild the muscles faster and thus recover more quickly from training. For those who train hard, with the removal of waste products such as lactic acid through massage, less pain and stiffness will be felt after a hard workout.
Improve your range of motion and flexibility
Massage stretches tissues that cannot be stretched in the usual methods as bundles of muscle fibers are stretched lengthwise as well as sideways. Massage also stretches the sheath or fascia that surrounds the muscle, releasing any tension or pressure build up.
Prevent injury and facilitate recovery from injury
By stretching connective tissue, massage improves circulation to help prevent or breakdown adhesions. Massage also influences the excretion of certain fluids (nitrogen, phosphorous and sulfur) necessary for tissue repair. The stroking movements in massage suck fluid through blood vessels and lymph vessels for optimum circulation. This is especially important in tight or damaged muscle tissue as a tight muscle will squeeze blood out like a sponge, depriving the tissues of vital nutrients and energy for repair. In addition, massage can break down scar tissue resulting from previous injury or trauma. Scar tissue affects the muscles, tendons and ligaments and can lead to inflexible tissues that are prone to injury and pain.
Align Your Body
Good body alignment is essential to proper functional motion. When one part of our body is out of balance the rest has to compensate and this can create instability and strain on all parts of the our body. Whether the imbalance is due to the effects of gravity over time, a repetitive movement, a physical limitation or an injury, we can regain your proper posture, reduce pain and tension, improve your range of motion. After your massage at Spa Vert, activities previously considered out of reach by you can often become possible.
