Massage therapy at Health Ridge Network LLC is a powerful technique for bringing your body back to wellbeing. It can improve your state of wellness through a combination of relaxation in the nervous system and positive mechanical response, effecting physical change throughout your tissues. The union between these two brings about a notable improvement in your state of health, both mental and physical.
Relaxation occurs when your heart rate and breathing slow, your blood pressure decreases, your production of cortisol and other stress hormones drops, and your muscles relax. Relaxation is also linked to an increase in your available level of serotonin, a chemical that positively affects thoughts and emotions.
Relaxation alone can halt and help rectify the physical trauma of stress and decrease associated risks, including anxiety, insomnia, hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, persistent fatigue, digestive disorders, sexual dysfunction, and psychological issues among many, many more.
Mechanical response occurs through a combination of the increase in blood and lymph flow and the physical relaxation of soft tissue, releasing nerves and deep connective tissue. Circulation improves due to the combination of both mental and soft tissue relaxation, leading to a self-reinforcing effect of increasing relaxation.
The improved circulation can also enhance delivery of both oxygen and nutrients to your muscle cells. When your cellular health improves, your tissues function with raised efficiency. This in turn helps your body eliminate waste and increase absorption of excess fluid, reducing swelling in your soft tissues.
At Health Ridge Network LLC, we have chosen our field of work because it genuinely helps people. Medical studies have held massage therapy to a high standard, due to initial doubt as to the efficacy of massage techniques.
