Niblett Technique Massage
Virtually every one agrees that the most obvious benefit of a full body massage is that it makes you feel great! The stress-relieving, soothing results are enough for many to include massage as a regular part of their lives. But what of the less obvious benefits?
Each square inch of your skin contains roughly 50 nerve endings and there are as many as five million total touch receptors in your skin relaying messages on to your brain. No wonder your body’s initial response to massage is to relax and de-stimulate! Even a simple touch has been shown to lower blood pressure and reduce the heart rate. Touch can also signal the brain to produce endorphins, your body’s natural pain suppressors.
Going deeper, Niblett Technique massage, which involves muscle, ligament and tendon manipulation can restore suppleness and strength to your muscles, improving their overall function. It’s the ideal treatment for releasing tension or muscles in spasm and also helps to release toxins such as lactic acid – produced by muscle tissue during exercise – for example during a personal training session.
Proper circulation is vital to continued health. Your blood and lymph carry nourishment to the trillions of cells throughout your body and then carry away the waste to be eliminated from the cells. Massage encourages a better exchange of nutrients at the cellular level and more thorough detoxification. Remember, the future “you” is determined by how well your army of cells regenerate themselves, so this is indeed a critical part of remaining fit & healthy.
The nervous system is your communication network, sending messages constantly that determine proper functioning throughout your body. Stress can affect the ability of the nervous system to do its job. The many nerve endings found in the skin and muscles are soothed by massage, and this contributes to keeping your internal lines of communication open and operational.
Niblett technique massage also aids in maintaining flexibility in your joints, such as the knee, hip, spine, shoulder, and neck. These joints are thoroughfares for nerves, veins and arteries, so their freedom of movement allows energy and blood to flow unimpeded.
The medical conditions that people find therapeutic massage can help include allergies, anxiety, high blood pressure, arthritis, asthma & bronchitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic & temporary pain, circulatory problems, depression, digestive disorders, headache, insomnia, myofascial pain (where the muscles connect), reduced range of motion, sinusitis, sports injuries, stress, and TMJ (noise and/or pain in the jaw joint).
So, you can see massage does quite a bit more than just relax you and work out the kinks in a sore back. Massage has been practiced for thousands of years and is one of the earliest known health treatments known to man. Massage offers more benefits than you may have imagined. Isn’t it good to know that something that feels so great can contribute to your long-term health as well?
