Benefits to the nervous system

      Massage can have a sedative, stimulating or even exhausting effect on the nervous system depending on the type and length of treatment given.

      Massage stimulates the touch, pressure and proprioceptive receptors of the skin and underlying tissue.

      Massage helps to balance the autonomic nervous system.

      Massage relaxes the muscles and helps to re-establish proper tonus through its effect on the neuromuscular reflex pathways.

      Massage is known to affect the neurotransmitters of the brain and increase endorphin secretion in particular (natural painkillers).

      Massage can help reduce nerve entrapment through the release of soft tissue or muscular binding.

      Massage can reduce nerve root compression caused by muscular tension.
