What is a Body Massage?

by: David Chandler

The holistic application of physical touch to affect the systems of
the body-the muscular, skeletal, elimination, digestive, circulatory,
respiratory, endocrine, lymphatic, emotional, mental and nervous
systems is called Body massage. Body massage is the
manipulation of the soft tissues of the body with the hands for
healing, therapeutic, pleasurable and relaxing effects. Body
massage is the loving touch of the heart expressed through the
hands. Professional therapeutic massage originated in China, is an
age-old healing art, which can alleviate mental, physical and
emotional ailments.

Let us study about the healing powers of body massage.


Body massage helps releasing stress and tension in our bodies by
increasing oxygen flow and blood circulation in the body. Excessive
unresolved tension and stress in our daily lives could cause
continuous muscular tension. This type of mental tension or stress
diminishes the flow of oxygen and blood to the muscles and
organs causing pains and aches, feelings of fatigue, symptomatic
heaviness, tightness of muscles and stiffness. This can even
increase the chance of strains and injuries. . Tension creates a
tendency for a build up of toxins in the body, and reduces the flow
of the more subtle energy or life force (Prana or Chi). Muscular
stress also deforms the skeletal anatomy, which further
compounds present problems and develops new ones.
