MASSAGE THERAPY: REJUVENATE YOURSELF

Massage therapy has been practiced throughout the ages, although during the 20th century massage gained a rather unsavoury reputation when it became associated with brothels and prostitution.  True massage is a therapeutic procedure performed by a licensed professional who is trained in the art of relaxation, and it takes place in an establishment that is dedicated to the health and wellness of its clients.  A Richmond Hill massage therapy clinic offers professional service specific to the needs of each and every client.

Massage therapy can benefit every part of the body, from head to toe, and it also affects the mind.  It improves blood circulation, and can increase the oxygen capacity of the blood by as much as 15%.  This improves cognitive function as well as function of all of the other systems in the body.  It influences the nerves that are connected to the internal organs, dilating the blood vessels to provide the organs with a greater supply of blood.  Better blood supply makes the organs function better, allowing them to ward off disease.

Richmond Hill massage therapy specialists will provide professional, healing massage to all parts of the body, including the largest organ in the body, the skin.  Massage therapy helps the skin retain its elasticity and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, making you look and feel years younger.  It also stimulates the sebaceous glands and sweat glands, which secrete oil and sweat, keeping the skin cool and moist.

Richmond Hill massage therapy can ease tension and combat fatigue, whichever is needed, because of its effect on the central nervous system.  Massage also stimulates the production of all types of secretions and excretions in the body such as gastric juices and urine.  It also increases the excretion of substances such as nitrogen and salt, increasing the body’s metabolic rate.
