01 Mar Thai massage to improve blood circulation
The ancient Greeks believed that a daily massage was one of the best ways to ensure good health. Experts today agree. Massage lowers blood pressure, improves body function and can help speed up the healing process.
Authentic Thai massage boost circulation to the extremities. A person with poor circulation can suffer from a variety of discomforts including the pooling of fluid in the extremities (like the toes), cold hands and feet, fatigue and achiness created by an accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles. Good circulation brings damaged, tense muscles the oxygen-rich blood they need to heal.
Massage facilitates circulation because the pressure created by the massage technique actually moves blood through the congested areas. The release of this same pressure causes new blood to flow in. The squeezing and pulling also flushes lactic acid from the muscles and improves the circulation of the lymph fluid which carries metabolic waste away from muscles and internal organs.
