what are toxins? Toxins are poisonous substances usually produced by bacteria, and they can be very harmful to the body. When the body gets sluggish due to lack of exercise or too little fluids, it has trouble flushing these toxins out. The stagnant toxins can lead to many health conditions such as:

  • Fevers
  • Skin eruptions
  • Joint pain
  • Cancer
  • Colds
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Psychological problems such as anxiety and depression
  • Chronic fatigue

So, how does massage help? Well, since these toxins are circulating through the bloodstream, manual therapy works to improve the circulation and promote blood flow to your organs, tissues, and muscles. The toxins are then squeezed out from between cells and muscle fibers and can be flushed out of the body more easily. Massage therapy also helps jump start the lymphatic system which plays a crucial role in pushing out toxins and boosting your immune system to defend against illness.Once your body experiences a detoxifying massage with a well-trained therapist here are some of the benefits you may experience:

  • More energy
  • Stronger immune system
  • Improved skin
  • Better breath
  • Clearer thinking
  • Healthier hair
