Relaxation With Benefits
Getting a massage is one of the most relaxing things a person can do for themselves. To feel the stress of everyday life worked out of your muscles inch by inch. To feel the calming sensation throughout your body is a wonderfully stress relieving experience. People have known about the stress relieving ability of massage for centuries, but we are only now learning about its true medical potential. If you are having problems with lymphatic drainage, massage may be right for you.
Stress & Lymphatic Drainage
If you are suffering from issues with lymphatic drainage then massage is likely to be an effective treatment.
Stress is a strange component of what makes us human. Our bodies are not capable of dealing with the stresses of everyday life. When a person is stressed for a long period of time there are certain physiological changes that occur within the body. The main change is a compression of the vessels of the body. This compression affects both the blood and lymphatic vessels.
Massage is performed by kneading the muscles of the body in an ordered and precise fashion using oils that are designed to relieve stress. The release of this stress allows the vessels to loosen and lets the lymphatic system run freely again. The kneading of the muscles also pushes the blood and lymphatic drainage through the body immediately improving flow.

Here are a few of the medical issues massage can treat:
