Can Massage Improve Your Circulation?

Posted: October 26th, 2011

Massages are not just for easing stress and tension, there are many medical benefits too. Lower blood pressure and improved circulation are just a few ways massages can improve your health. Many people suffer from poor circulation; symptoms of this would be fluid buildup in the feet, cold feet and hands, fatigue, and soreness. These symptoms are caused by a buildup of lactic acid in the muscles. Massages can help with this by releasing blood through the affected areas. The release of this same pressure causes new blood to flow in. The squeezing and pulling also flushes lactic acid from the muscles and improves the circulation of the lymph fluid which carries metabolic waste away from muscles and internal organs, resulting in lower blood pressure and improved body function. Thiswill getrid of the swelling, fatigue, and any soreness you may have. Usually massages for medical conditions are done twice a week and depending on the severity or your condition may go for anywhere between 3 to 6 weeks. After your massage you will feel relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated, which also builds your self-esteem and confidence.
