Human touch has long been known as very therapeutic.
There are two main benefits from massage therapy that are beyond dispute:
- Stress reduction
- Lymphatic flow
Modern humans live in a very unnatural state of constant stress. Our physiology was not designed for this type of constant stress. Day to day stresses trigger excessive release of cortisol, leading to "adrenal burnout". We need to find ways to relax. One excellent way to relax is to receive a massage and let the worries of the day fade away.
We are all aware of our blood flow as we can't live without it for more than a few minutes. However, fewer people are aware of their lymphatic system which is another fluid transport system in our bodies. Lymphatic fluid is moved when we move our bodies and work our muscles. During normal exertion, lymph flows into the general circulation through the thoracic duct at a rate of 125 ml per hour. Massage is another excellent way to stimulate lymphatic flow. An important role of lymph fluid is to transport immune system cells and to carry away toxins from our cells.
This is a truly amazing technique. Using placement of hands at strategic energy centers and lines on the body can result in amazing feelings of warmth and energy. It's a technique you really have to try before dismissing it. Conventional scientific thinking would lead you to assume this would have no effect. Yet, cutting edge technology, like the "Ondamed" machine are actually based on the same scientific concepts of applying energy to the body at the same frequencies and intensity of human touch.
