Massage can provide the body and mind with some long-term health benefits. Relaxation associated with lying on the massage table is where it starts. Followed by an increase in blood flow, promoted by the massage strokes. This assists with an increase in nutrients and oxygen to the muscle tissue, which can have a positive effect on your soft tissue structures. Along with the physical benefits, there is the sense of well-being and stress relief, provided by the targeted soft tissue treatment. Which is highly therapeutic, and nurturing for your mind and body.
