The effect of massage on lymph circulation

Water, as well as low-molecular substances dissolved in it (that is, glucose, inorganic salts, oxygen and other gases that are in the blood plasma) can pass from the blood to the tissues. Hydrostatic pressure in the capillaries promotes the release of iodine from the capillary bed into the tissue fluid, and the pressure of the blood plasma delays the release of water. The filtration pressure, which ensures the exit of water from the blood channels into the tissue fluid, is equal to the difference of these 2 pressures.


In turn, filtration is facilitated by the actions of such factors as: periodic fluctuation of pressure in the internal tissues of the body as a result of pulsation of the arteries that pass through the tissues and periodic contraction of the skeletal muscles and smooth muscles of the internal organs, which cause compression of the lymphatic vessels, as a result of this constant compression causes the injection of fluid, which in turn fills the lymphatic vessels.

All this greatly affects the overall health of the body, and can lead to a number of very serious diseases. Specialized massage is able to adjust the work of all internal organs.

Massage is an effective factor that promotes lymph formation. And this factor is very important. The movement of lymph, as well as venous blood, is facilitated by muscle contraction.

When a person leads a sedentary lifestyle, there is a slight stagnation of blood and lymph. To avoid it, you should behave at least intensively, but if a person does not have such an opportunity, then the 2nd no less effective way to solve this problem is massage.

Classical therapeutic massage, or any other, the effect of which is aimed at stimulating the deep-lying muscles of the body, in this case is the most effective.
