Massage is a powerful tool for improving physical and mental health. It can reduce fatigue, improve circulation, and even help to process energy release from clients. But how does massage affect the energy of the body? In this article, we'll explore the ways massage can help to increase energy levels and improve overall wellbeing. Massage does not directly increase energy, but it can reduce fatigue and symptoms that often drain our energy.
This is because massage improves blood flow and circulation, which in turn increases oxygen in our cells. Massage therapists can also benefit from using energy in addition to their massage techniques. Clients often release energy during the massage, which can be processed consciously when energy work is used in conjunction with massage. This helps to reduce the amount of energy the massage therapist spends on their own life force. Massage is a demanding profession, but when combined with other modalities it can create a powerful healing session for the client.
The use of energy also increases the energy level of the massage therapist and has the ability to extend their career. Studies have shown that there is an overall statistically significant association between receiving massage therapy and improved levels of stress and depression. The mental image created by massage helps the therapist to control what their hands do and why they do it. Clinical trials have shown that massage reduces pain levels and improves function by analyzing qualitative data. It has also been found to reduce depressive symptoms in general and relieve depression in people with fibromyalgia. Although massages come in physical form, they also have long-term emotional and psychological effects.
Adding massage to regular routines, especially in winter, can promote greater well-being and provide an opportunity for more energy. Studies have shown that massage therapy is effective in reducing muscle pain, perceived recovery, physiological restoration, and physical performance in male bodybuilders. For thirty-five years in the field of massage therapy, I have performed and have seen several of my colleagues performing different types of massages with a wide range of results. More research is needed to find out exactly why massage helps control stress and anxiety and what direct chemical effects are at play. It is important for a massage therapist to understand that any situation of inflammation, such as arthritis, tendonitis or bursitis, will be accompanied by tissue swelling, excessive volume of accumulation of extracellular fluid and venous blood stasis. This impedes the supply of arterial blood (oxygen) and anti-inflammatory hormones (such as hydrocortisone).
The inhibitory regimen is the way of performing a massage that takes advantage of this phenomenon, which makes massage therapy so unique and powerful. Despite its strange configuration, it's no secret that massages are a highly effective way to de-stress. The physical and mental benefits are worth any possible momentary discomfort for many people. Massage can help to increase energy levels and improve overall wellbeing.
