In the field of massage therapy, there are so many excellent techniques available nowadays it can be difficult to choose. But if you’re looking for a really relaxing, de-stressing type of massage I have one for you that you may not be aware of.
Massage is normally associated with working the muscles or lymphatic system to help aching, tired limbs or reduce cellulite and other conditions. This new approach called neuromassage is different because it targets the nervous system.
Let me explain what is it exactly and how can it benefit you.
What is Neuromassage?
Neuromassage aims to stimulate particular sensory receptors in your skin. These then send messages to the brain to give the feeling of relaxation and the relief of stress.
How Does Neuromassage Work?
Our skin contains receptors for pressure, temperature, vibration and others. Receptors send signals to the brain which releases neurotransmitters such as endorphins and oxytocin. These hormones are associated with feelings of well-being and relaxation.
Neuromassage therapists employ gentle, rhythmic strokes with varying pressure to engage these receptors. Unlike other types of massage, it is not manipulating muscles and limbs.
By targeting specific areas of the body and using techniques tailored to individual needs, neuromassage creates a strong sense of calm and balance.
