What is a circulatory massage – and what are the benefits?

Massage therapy has many various techniques that promote wellness and improved lifestyles. There are many different strokes and techniques that all deliver diverse results.

While it isn’t the first phrase that pops into people’s heads when they think of massage therapy, circulatory massage is one of the most common healing methods used to help restore proper blood flow to the bodies muscles. 

Originally developed and perfected in Sweden, this specific massage helps relieve stress from the body and muscles, and can help improve a person’s overall mental and physical health. Using a variation of five different strokes, this therapeutic massage involves applying pressure (medium to deep), tension, vibration or motion to the different parts of the body either with hand, arms or electronic massage devices.

When applied with expertise, this massage technique has several benefits. It not only helps by increasing oxygen to flow to the bloodstream and relaxing tense muscles, but also expelling harmful toxins from the body by boosting the lymphatic system’s ability to cleanse lactic acid, uric acid, and metabolic waste. This results in better bodily function and can lower blood pressure.

If someone also suffers from chronic headaches, mobility issues, or joint pain (such as osteoarthritis) these massages can improve or resolve these issues long-term (with regular treatment).

Combined with the right diet and an exercise routine tailored to meet your needs, a circulatory massage can yield potentially life-changing results! With stress reduction and the ability to soothe sore muscles or painful joints, the benefits of circulatory massage can help almost anyone more fully enjoy their lives – and you can learn the skills necessary to empower the lives of others through the power of massage therapy!

Healing Hands School offers hands-on classes and instruction on circulatory massages as a part of our comprehensive massage therapy education. If you’re seeking to open a new career path in massage therapy, learning the five strokes and care involved in circulatory massage will serve as laying the foundation in a lasting career helping others.
