Circulatory Massage

The Circulatory massage is a technique whose purpose is to activate the blood and lymphatic circulation favoring cellular exchange. By mobilizing the body fluids is achieved on the one hand, better nutrients to reach the cells, and secondly, that circulating toxins to reach the organs and glands responsible for eliminating them.

The technique is to mobilize the body fluids by acting directly on the blood and lymph vessels, and indirectly on the neuromotor endings. This procedure will favor the functioning of the heart muscle and strengthen blood distribution from the internal organs to the muscles and skin. As a result, there will be an increase in body temperature and transform the tissues heated, preventing circulatory injury.

What is the Circulatory Massage?

The Circulatory massage is a technique whose purpose is to activate the blood and lymphatic circulation favoring cellular exchange. By mobilizing the body fluids is achieved on the one hand, better nutrients to reach the cells, and secondly, that circulating toxins to reach the organs and glands responsible for eliminating them.

The technique is to mobilize the body fluids by acting directly on the blood and lymph vessels, and indirectly on the neuromotor endings. This procedure will favor the functioning of the heart muscle and strengthen blood distribution from the internal organs to the muscles and skin. As a result, there will be an increase in body temperature and transform the tissues heated, preventing circulatory injury.

The incidence in each of the circuits is different depending on whether the artery-venous or lymphatic blood circulatory system:

Venous circulation

Venous blood vessels circulate superficial level, so that massage should be performed in the same direction of the blood in the veins, ie, from the extremities toward the heart. This procedure increases the flow of blood going back to the heart, improving the filtering of the same, and promotes the function of the inlet and outlet valves of the heart muscle.

Blood Circulation

The increased heat and massage obtained flush, causes dilation of arterial vessels. This expansion helps transit blood oxygen and nutrients, to increase the area metabolism.

The system of arterial vessels moves deeper level within the body, so that massage does not act as directly on them, as it does in the venous circulation. To treat deep muscle masses through good distribution of oxygen and nutrients, which improves the trophic status of the muscles and skin, we also get that the arterial blood flow more smoothly.

Lymphatic circulation

The lymphatic system, along with the venous circulation, is responsible for purifying the body. This movement moves at skin level. With a gentle massage is sufficient to mobilize retained fluids, for filtration and drainage.
