In recent years, I personally think that stress and the depression are a modern social problem and have contributed to these problems. The advantage of massage over other treatments is that it is very effective in helping "sicknesses of the body" but also "psychological disorders". For example, massage combined with aromatherapy is a popular medical treatment for healing traumatic disorders and stress.
Massage is a two-way flow of touch and response, a mutual exchange of energy. The hands, which both give and receive and the skin-are the instruments of communication.
Massage can be a form of meditation, with both participants present in the movement, both focused on the point of contact between them.
Massage is essential to the promotion and maintenance of good health. It has enormous therapeutic effects, both physiological and psychological, on all of the systems of the body.
The nervous system will benefit because the stress and strains of modern day living may be considerably alleviated and all types of headaches may be relieved. Neck, shoulder and back pain may be reduced and discomforts of arthritis and rheumatism suffered by so many may be relieved.
The lymphatic system is stimulated, thereby assisting the elimination of toxins and poisons, cleansing and purifying our systems more efficiently.
The circulatory and immune systems are activated. Digestion is improved and constipation and bowel problems subside.
The respiratory system benefits, as breathing and bronchial disorders are improved.
In short, massage is an excellent state of well - being and harmony.
