The Benefits of Massage for Your Skin

Did you know that healthier skin is one of the benefits of massage? Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it is one of the first places that shows signs of illness, stress, and a non-healthy lifestyle. Many people first see a massage therapist because they have pain in their muscles or nerve pain their doctor feels will be relieved with massage therapy. They come away with the added benefit of healthier, younger-looking skin. Here is why:

Increased Blood Flow

The loosening of the muscles and other soft tissue just beneath the skin allows your blood to make its way to your skin easier. This has several benefits. Your skin takes on a healthy glow as the capillaries fill with blood. Nutrients in the blood have an easier time nourishing skin cells. This nourishment allows the skin to return to its former regenerative state, making it retain moisture easier and replace the older skin cells with newer, healthier ones.

Dead Cells Eliminated

The massaging of the skin creates friction that eliminates the top layer of dead skin cells that cause your skin to appear dull and unhealthy. As the fresh cells beneath take their place, your skin begins to glow as it soaks up the essential vitamins that can now reach it easier. This then creates a cycle where the skin has an easier time regenerating new cells.

Impurities Removed

Gland production is improved with massage. This allows your glands to empty of impurities and they are eliminated through sweating. Uric acid and other unhealthy elements in the blood stream find their way through your pores, opening them as built up oils are pushed out and away. Your skin becomes healthy and more youthful-looking.

Benefits of massage therapy can often be seen after your very first visit. Making it a regular part of your health routine will not only have your skin in the best condition it can be, but pain and stress will also be reduced. Overall you won't just look healthier, you will feel healthier.
