A massage is good for you! A professional massage will improve your blood circulation and the disposal of waste products. The blood circulation is of vital importance to our body. Through the blood nutrients will be transported into the cells and waste products will be removed out of the cells.
A good blood circulation in the muscles is also of importance. A muscle produces lactic acid during movement, this is a waste product. Normally this lactic acid will be disposed of in a good manner, but sometimes there can appear so called ‘knots’. It is amazing what removing of the knots can do for your neck and shoulders. Often your head feels more free and a lot of energy and relaxation can get out.
A massage improves also the resistance. After a massage the amount of white blood cells increase. These cells help fighting infections and viruses. A massage also reduces the stress hormone cortisol. If cortisol is to long present in the body, it affects your resistance. Due to the deep relaxation, the nervous system switches to a mode of recovery.
