Massage / Recommendation

We at Nutrilligence have a holistic approach to diet, health and lifestyle therapy. Massage is one of the essential health holistic treatments that are beneficial both for the body and the mind.

Massage increases the circulation of blood and the flow of lymph. The direct mechanical effect of rhythmically applied manual pressure and movement used in massage can dramatically increase the rate of blood flow. Also, the stimulation of nerve receptors causes the blood vessels (by reflex action) to dilate, which facilitates the blood flow.

According to the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association), massage therapy is beneficial both for the physical and mental therapeutic state.
