Are you looking for improved blood circulation in Lexington? Lifelong benefits of massage don?t stop at the skin! A physiological response to regular massage therapy is improved blood circulation.
If a person has poor blood circulation then there is a decreased amount of oxygen being delivered to various tissues of the body. This can lead to a number of things:
- Cold hands and feet
- Swelling of feet, ankles and/or lower legs
- Itchy skin rashes
- Leg ulcers
Massage therapy helps improve circulation through the pressure that is applied by the massage therapist. This pressure actually helps move blood out of congested regions also allowing new blood to enter the area. There is also an improvement in the flow of lymph fluid which is responsible for carrying metabolic waste out of the muscles and organs.
Through regular chiropractic adjustments and massages at Eagle Creek Massage, you could improve the blood circulation in your body and improve the overall function as well. There are more benefits to improving circulation such as:
- Safely and naturally decreasing blood pressure
- Improve fatigue
- Improved breathing
- Loss of burning, numbness and/or tingling in toes or fingers
