An inability to maintain homeostasis can lead to death or a disease. This is a condition known as Homeostatic Imbalance. Other diseases such as heart failure, diabetes, dehydration, hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, gout and any disease caused by the presence of a toxin in the bloodstream may result from a Hoemeostatic Imbalance.
Massage helps the body maintain or return to homeostasis. Through the effects on the circulatory, lymphatic and other systems, massage leaves the body in a better position to maintain homeostasis, or its ability to regulate its inner environment.
Another way that massage helps is by increasing the body's flexibility. Loss of flexibility affects the body's ability to maintain homeostasis. Stress affects the body's ability to adjust to new challenges, and maintain flexibility. Massage increases the body's flexibility and range of motion.
What does all this mean to you? If you're feeling stressed out, if you feel like you've got knots that just never seem to go away, if you suffer from frequent headaches or digestive complaints, you should investigate a way to help you return to a more healthful state of being.
