Balance Your Organs and Glands With Massage

December 28th, 2016 • Posted by Mary Nix • Permalink

A balanced body is a healthy body. Yogis have known about the positive effects of massage for centuries, and in fact, many yoga poses are designed to "massage" various organs and glands in the body. But what about traditional massage therapies? Can you really balance the organs and glands with massage?

You bet you can! Aside from the obvious benefits of relaxation and a sense of well-being, massage benefits many of the body's organ and gland systems resulting in improved digestion, blood circulation and various other bodily functions.

Your Largest Organ

Did you know that your skin is considered an organ? It's true, it's the largest organ in your body and massage therapy provides some very positive benefits to skin. It improves circulation, elasticity, and releases toxins and dead cells. It also improves the function of the sebaceous and sweat glands, which in turn keeps the skin lubricated, clean and cool.

Better Digestion

Massage increases bodily secretions and excretions, and increases the production of saliva, gastric juices and urine.

The Cardio-Vascular System

Massage is very beneficial to the cardio-vascular system. It reduces high blood pressure, increases circulation and brings nutrients and oxygen to the tissues and organs. It also removes toxic waste from the cardio-vascular system (and all systems of the body).

Everybody knows that a massage leaves you feeling relaxed, with a real sense of well-being. But who knew that beyond soothing the nervous system and soothing sore or aching muscles and joints, that massage also benefits the way our bodies operate on the inside?
