Nervous System's Benefits:
• Massage stimulates the touch, pressure and proprioceptive receptors of the skin and underlying tissue.
• Massage can have a sedative, stimulating or even exhausting effect on the nervous system depending on the type and length of treatment given.
• Massage reduces sympathetic stimulation and helps to balance the autonomic nervous system.
• Massage relaxes the muscles and helps to reestablish proper tonus through its effect on the neuromuscular reflex pathways.
• Massage is known to affect the neurotransmitters of the brain and increase endorphin secretion in particular.
• Massage can reduce nerve entrapment through the release of soft tissue or muscular binding.
