This is not something that is as important when we are younger but the older we get the more important this does become. Good circulation helps the body to stay healthy by getting good flow of blood and lymph around the body. It is said that massage also stimulates the flow of lymph around the body which is what helps our immune system to fight any threats within the body.
One analogy is a tube of toothpaste, the more pressure applied to the tube the more toothpaste will flow and this is analogous to the cardiovascular and lymphatic systems.
Some of the best massage to improve circulation include:
Deep Tissue Massage – a massage great to release tension and here pressure is applied in small strokes and friction strokes across the muscles/. Your masseuse will detect the areas that are problematic through stroking techniques and really work these areas which will help to release cellular debris and also help to release toxins in the body
Swedish massage – another favourite in the Western world. This works with the masseuse applying strokes to work the muscles and bones. Bod tissue is manipulated to help stimulate lymph and blood flow through the body.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage – This was a type of massage specifically designed to improve circulation in the body. It consists of a slow rhythmic massage to stimulate the lymphatic system of the body which will in turn accelerate lymphatic fluid inside the body
Erotic Massage – Not a favourite of everyone but none the less studies have shown that even an erotic massage at a local erotic massage parlour in London is a very good way to stimulate circulation in the body. The technique if done by a professional masseuse will be similar to a Swedish masseuse but the erotic nature of the massage has shown to work well with circulation in the body through the massive release of endorphins with this type of therapy
