Effects of a good massage
Índice de Contenidos
Many positive things happen in your body during a massage. And if it is an erotic massage, the pleasant sensations you experience are maximized.
Obviously it is something you must check for yourself. That is, if you still do not dare to receive an erotic massage or even a traditional massage, perhaps this is the best time to do it.
How your body reacts during a massage
You should know that during a massage, physiological and involuntary changes occur in many parts of your body. Skin-to-skin contact positively affects the nervous, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
In addition, it also produces changes in the endocrine system, as well as in the immune system. Consequently, it is not uncommon for massage to be recommended in conjunction with other
treatments and medications for a wide range of stress-related conditions.
In fact, there are many studies that demonstrate the benefits of massage as a stress-reducing treatment.
But as mentioned, there are also a number of additional physiological changes that occur during a massage and that contribute to the general feeling of relaxation that is experienced during and after the massage.
Greater control over your physical well-being
Additionally, the different types of massages, whether it is a mutual massage, a Nuru massage, a body to body massage, or even a prostate massage, provide a host of health and wellness benefits.
Therefore, by taking the time to deal with stress, you can have more control over your physical well-being. That is, you can control your stress levels.
In fact, a body massage lowers the hormones that cause anxiety and at the same time increases the hormones that produce happiness, not to mention that they keep cortisol levels low.
Massage reduces cortisol levels in your body
This is a very important aspect that also appears in your body during a massage. In other words, when you have high levels of cortisol, you can have various health problems, including high blood pressure and low immunity.
In more severe cases, high levels of the stress hormone that is not controlled can cause heart attacks and even strokes.
In the short term, very high stress can cause irritability, headache, nausea, anxiety, tiredness and insomnia. All this can return more serious health problems in the long term, with potential harmful effects for your body and general health.
What happens to your muscles during a massage?
Another positive aspect that happens in your body during a massage is that your muscles relax. If you are a physically active person, a massage can help your body realign muscle fibers and thereby improve blood flow, muscle function, and nutrient supply.
Even if you are not very active, the daily routine of going to work, taking care of children, shopping, etc., can generate tension and pain in your muscles.
And if you don’t remove that tension in your muscles, it will spread throughout your body. As a result, it will prevent you from performing better in your daily activities, and may even cause injury.
But if you receive a massage you can easily avoid all this. That is, during a massage, the masseuse or masseuse will always rub your muscles upwards and towards the heart.
They do it this way to compress carbon dioxide-rich blood to the heart and lungs. From these organs, the blood is cleaned or filtered, returning to the muscles as oxygen-rich blood.
And while it is true that this is a process that our body does on its own, massage simply helps speed things up.
Improved mental well-being
Also, when massage is done correctly, it can improve your mental well-being. That is, massage increases the levels of serotonin, dopamine, and neurotransmitters in your body, thereby helping to reduce depression.
This happens in this way because serotonin is a neurotransmitter that has the ability to regulate a person’s mood, hunger and sleep.
Therefore, massage promotes the release of serotonin, which in turn generates a feeling of mental well-being.
