EFFECTS OF MASSAGE ON THE BODY SYSTEMS
Massage has an indirect effect. Muscles will be improved therefore there will be less stress on the skeleton, particularly around the joints. Better muscle tone improves skeletal posture. Passive movements mobilise joints. By improving circulation, better nutrient delivery to bones enables more efficient cell regeneration.
Removes lactic acid,(waste product of too much exercise). Removes toxins and reduces stiffness. Improves circulation therefore there is a better delivery of nutrients and removal of waste products.
Physical manipulation of muscles helps flexibility. Massage results in improved muscle tone and posture. Massage relaxes muscles.
Improves circulation by speeding up the flow of blood. Massage assists the action of the heart. It can lower high blood pressure by removing the tension that causes it. There is better delivery of nutrients and removal of waste products because blood flow is improved, also improving blood flow to the surface of the skin.
Massage can either be invigorating or relaxing. A stimulating massage will awaken the nervous system, energising the body. A relaxing massage will calm the nervous system thus removing the effects of stress. Massage restores balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
Massage results in better circulation therefore better delivery of nutrients to cells around the body. It improves the elimination of waste. Improves blood flow to the liver, hence there is better elimination of waste. Massage physically assists with peristalsis over the abdomen.
Encourages more efficient waste removal therefore encourages urine production and elimination. It results in improved blood flow to the kidneys, improving their health and efficiency.
Massage relaxes the body which results in deeper, fuller breathing. There is better and more efficient gaseous exchange and more oxygen is delivered into the body. The muscles involved with respiration will be less tense (intercostals and diaphragm) therefore breathing will be more efficient.
Massage helps the physical movement of lymph through the lymphatic system. It helps with the removal of waste, thereby boosting the immune system.
Massage results in less stress leading to fewer stress hormones. The feel good effect releases endorphins. The delivery of hormones is improved by better circulation.
