How Massages Help Naturally Heal Your Body

Today I want to take some time to tell you about massages and what they can do for your body. We all know massages feel good and make you feel good, but how do they actually work?

Well massages start by releasing nerve compression. Our nerves control every feeling that we feel, from touch to pain. Body pain can often be attributed to pinched or compressed nerves. On top of pain, this can cause stiffness, lack of energy and an overall bad feeling.

Massages work to release that compression and allow your nerve impulses to travel freely throughout your body. This is because a massage stimulates the muscle, blood flow, and nervous system of your body.

Massages can also help increase your flexibility and range of motion. Are you having trouble turning your neck? Does bending over hurt? Many Americans feel this way. That's because their joints are stiff and knotted. Massages can help relieve stiff joints and improve your overall ability to move. Muscle knots can hinder the ability to turn your neck back and forth. Massages are designed to work out muscle knots and fix this problem.

Finally, massages help improve energy levels. By unlocking tight muscles, massages help improve circulation. Blood carries nutrients throughout the body. Increased blood flow increases the flow of nutrients in your body which can have an overall impact on your energy level. A higher energy level means you'll want to get more physically fit, which makes you feel better as well.

If you're having pain or stress issues, I highly encourage you to give massages a try. They are all natural and don't come with any side effects like medicines or chiropractic.

Top 5 Reasons to Treat Yourself to a Body Wrap

Body Wraps are one of the most commonly asked for treatments in spas and salons all over the world. They are not only a relaxing way to spend a couple of hours- they actually offer some REAL benefits. I'm going to talk about the top five reasons that absolutely everyone should treat themselves to a body wrap.

1. Inch Loss:

This is probably the number one reason for people getting body wraps. We all feel at one time or another that we could slim down a little bit. Imagine you have an event coming up- the perfect dress lined up in your wardrobe... Just one problem, you've packed on a couple of pounds and that zip gets stuck half way up. What do you do? Buy a new dress? Smart people turn to body wraps. They are an amazing way to slim down and lose inches off your whole body! There are people out there who are disbelieving of the process, claiming that any inches lost are just water weight. This is not the case. The active ingredients in a body wrap stimulate the body to undergo an intense detox. The circulatory systems (both blood and lymphatic) are stimulated to speed up the elimination of toxins from your body. The cells are compacted through the excretion of tissue waste- and your body is measuring inches smaller!

2. Detox

As I mentioned earlier a major benefit of a body wrap is detoxing. The active ingredients in body wraps stimulate the body to eliminate toxins from the body at a much faster rate than it usually would. There are many benefits to having a really good detox. These include more energy, mental clarity, clearer skin and decreased stress levels. Not only that but it will also boost any weight loss program that you are on and help you achieve results much faster than you normally would. It is important that you do remember to drink lots of water to help flush out the toxins.

3. Firms & Tones the Skin

Body Wraps also firm and tone the skin. This is achieved through improving the elasticity of the skin. This is especially helpful if you are on a weight loss program and you are finding that the reduction in weight is actually starting to cause your skin to sag. A body wrap will help to smooth out the skin and even visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite.

4. Relaxation

This speaks for itself really- who couldn't use some time out for some R & R. Taking some time just for yourself, to get away from it all. A Body Wrap usually takes around 60 minutes. That is a whole hour just for you! You actually don't have a choice but to lay down for an hour and chill out! In today's busy society most of us could use an excuse to do just that!

5. Increased Circulation

This is an enormous benefit of body wrap treatments. Good circulation is vital to maintaining our overall good health. The blood contains nutrients and carries oxygen to our organs and muscles allowing us to function at our optimum capacity.

Body wraps provide many therapeutic benefits and are also a great way to slim down, look and feel great.

Benefit of Hot Stone Massage

More and more, hot stone massages are being appreciated worldwide because of their healing benefits and their ability to relieve stress. It is being increasingly demanded at many spas and wellness centers and is also being used in therapy. While stones have always being used for construction or decoration, in the past few years, some specific stones have being found to be good instruments for body massage. A massage stone is a smooth, flat and heated or cold rock used for body massage.

The massage stone was first used traditionally by some tribes in South America and Asia. The recent revival of hot stone therapy in the U.S was by Mary Nelson of Arizona who introduced the LaStone Therapy.

Different types of stones are used for stone body massages some of which are sardonyx, marble, jade and basalt. Basalt is the most used stone for this purpose because of its greater capacity to retain heat energy. It is placed in water and heated to attain a certain temperature range; then it is placed at specific points (generally the back or other parts like palm of hand and legs) of the body. The heat energy transferred to the body generates great benefits to the body.

Hot stone massage is known to have several benefits some of which are:

Muscle Relaxation: The heat from the stone causes greater relaxation of the muscles. This helps the therapist to manipulate the inner tissues more effectively. Some athletes have particularly tense muscles which make regular massage a challenge; these stones provide the energy required to soften them before the therapist continuous with deeper massage.

Improved Circulation: The therapists generally allow the stones to lie on the body parts for a while before starting the massage. The energy absorbed by the body tissues penetrates deep and causes the widening of blood vessels and the result is a more fluent circulation of blood round the body. This is important for an improved state of health.

Pain killer: All other methods of massage can help relieve pain generally caused by injuries, stiff joints or tense muscles. However, heated stone massage is more effective because of the intense nature of the massage. A heated stone massage leaves a better feeling because it permits the therapist to perform a deeper massage effectively as compared to other methods. Many times, pain is stress related and nothing eases stress as effectively as a heated stone massage.

Mental benefits: The relaxation gained from a warm stone massage helps ease mental stress and tension. Hot stone massage has been used in a complimentary way to traditional medical therapy and has many times been incorporated into the treatment plan of a patient. It is not a substitute for professional care but it is a great enhancer.

Wellness: Warm stone therapy is also used to achieve wellness as it is associated with balance and harmony. Hot stone massages have been known to cure insomnia and depression. Since they are used to release deadly toxins from the body, they naturally augment the curing of whatever condition was tied to those toxins.

The benefits of heated stone massage cannot be over emphasized; it promotes a feeling of peace and harmony and eases tension in a stress-filled world.
