the flow of lymph and venous systems aids circulation, reduces blood
pressure and heart rate.

as lactic acid.
tissues that cannot be reached by other means. During massage,
muscle bundles are stretched longitudinally and transversely,
improving intramuscular circulation.
- Breaking Down Scar Tissue.
friction massage helps return normal tissue tension by breaking
down scar tissue and adhesions.
- Improved Tissue Elasticity.
repetitive isometric exercise, muscle effort makes tissues hard
& inelastic. Soft tissue can be pulled near to its maximal length
and reclaim normal elasticity while under stress in certain
- Opening Micro Circulation.
deep massage . causes a release of vasoactive substances creating
dilation of the vessels and new fluid to the tissues.
Physiological Effect & Benefits
- Pain Reduction.
the mechano-receptors, causing release of endorphins, bloting
out pain, reducing pain sensations and muscle tension.
During massage. the
mechano-receptors sense touch, pressure, tissue length, movement
and warmth and the connective tissues are stimulated.
- Balancing Autonomous Nervous System.
Through massage, we reduce muscle tension and
nullify pain due to musculo-Skeletal disorders.
- Psychological = Invigorating Feeling!
