There are various types of massage, from Swedish massage to massages with a more targeted and specific purpose, like a sports massage, which is aimed at helping athletes recover.
No matter the type, the benefits of massage come down to one thing: pressure.
The skin is moved during a moderate pressure massage, which helps calm and slow the nervous system. Slowing the nervous system leads to other physiological effects, like a decrease in heart rate, lower blood pressure, lessen depression, decreased anxiety, enhanced sleep quality, greater energy, improved concentration, increased circulation, reduced fatigue.
Massage therapy can also help address many specific health issues.
