Massage and its Benefit on the Nervous System


In the US, we live our lives so much in the fast lane, pedal to the medal, and overwork our sympathetic nervous systems. Our bodies feel like we are almost always in fight-or-flight, hurrying to meet deadlines. One of the great problems with living our lives in that way is that our bodies do not heal in sympathetic mode. We only heal in the parasympathetic mode of our nervous systems. And massage is a very nice adjunct to helping us get back into our bodies, move back into the parasympathetic mode so that we can relax, restore, re-create, and heal.
