5. Relaxing the fascia on the scalp, decreasing tension and some forms of
It also maintains muscular functioning and health by:
6. Helping to maintain muscles in the best possible state of nutrition, flexibility and
vitality w speeding up muscle recovery after activity or injury.
7. Relieving muscle restrictions, tightness, stiffness and spasm which may limit full
8. Delaying muscle wasting due to disuse, for example, after a stroke or during
lengthy bed rest.
9. Encouraging better muscle activity through increased movement of nutrients and
removal of waste products.
10. Relaxing muscles and other tight tissues. For example tight muscles can press
on nerves causing pain and nerves can also become trapped in connective
tissue. Massage relaxes muscles and other soft tissues decreasing pain due to
It promotes cardiovascular health by:
11. Increasing local blood flow without putting additional strain on the heart.
12. Mechanically propeling blood towards the heart in sedentary people and those on
long term bed-rest.
13. Stimulating nerves that control blood vessels. Widening the blood vessels can
increase blood circulation and lower blood pressure in some cases.
14. Increasing delivery of oxygen to muscle and other tissue cells and removal of
15. Decreasing accumulation of metabolic waste and by-products from tissue
damage and inflammation thereby assisting healing.
16. Decreasing heart rate through decreased stimulation of the sympathetic nervous
system (“relaxation response”).
Massage therapy aids in respiration by:
17. Slowing down the rate of respiration via reduced stimulation of the sympathetic
18. Increasing lung capacity and pulmonary function if these are decreased by tight
primary and secondary muscles of respiration.

stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system.
26. Decreasing pain with release of pain-reducing neurochemicals. It can provide
stimuli to modulate pain perception and decrease pain directly with some
27. Decreasing stress levels by activation of the relaxation response. The many
physical stress-related problems of everyday life can be soothed away by slow
rhythmic massage. Massage recipients show an increase in dopamine and
serotonin levels which suggests a decrease in stress levels and depression.
Massage therapy assists the digestive system by:
28. Increasing movement of the large intestine, helping to relive colic and intestinal
29. Promoting activation of the parasympathetic nervous system which also
30. Decreasing constipation by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system and
by direct movement of faecal material around the bowel. This will aid in
elimination without drugs.
It influences other soft tissues by:
31. Assisting with proper alignment of connective tissue fibres after injury.
32. Increasing movement at a joint by decreasing muscle tension and connective
tissue thickening and rigidity.
