Massage therapy is defined as “the manual manipulation of muscular structure and soft body tissues of the human body, including muscle, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments.” Massage has been used for thousands of years by people living all over the world as a means of naturally treating both mental and physical body ailments.

There are many different types of massages, and the styles slightly vary our therapist customize all massages to individual needs. They can range from light stroking to deep pressure. Some of the different types include, but are not limited to, Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, sports massage, and trigger point massage.

Massage + Cleansing

Massage therapy can be especially beneficial when cleansing. This is mainly because it stimulates the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system includes a complex network of vessels, ducts, lymph nodes, the spleen, the thymus, the adenoids, and the tonsils. The main function of the lymphatic system is to cleanse toxins and protect against harmful invaders in the body.

This means it carries waste from the tissues and into the bloodstream for removal. Pretty incredible, right? As we know, we are constantly coming into contact with chemicals, whether it be through food, air, cosmetics, toxic household cleaners, tap water, or simply the natural metabolic wastes our bodies produce that need to be flushed daily. Every one of our cells takes in nutrients and eliminates wastes. Once fluid is passed out of a cell membrane, it becomes “lymph” fluid. It contains substances that the cells want to get rid of, including wastes, pathogens, and undigested proteins. Making sure that we remove these toxins regularly is incredibly important for our overall health.
