Massage is a tried-and-true method of eliminating toxins from your body, pushing them through your lymphatic system.

Your lymphatic fluid system is essential to your good health. It works directly in concert with your cardiovascular system.

When you get a massage, the rhythmic pressure and movements work to push things through the system faster.

This is good because if your system becomes sluggish for some reason such as illness, it will make you feel worse.

A good massage can help you get well faster.

Massage can assist with:

Chronic Pain

Many people report less pain when getting regular massage. It’s one reason chiropractors have added massage to their services. Massage is a proven way to help loosen muscles, push toxins through your system, and make you feel better almost immediately.

Muscle Pain from Exercise

When you exercise, toxins can get stopped up and stored in your joints and muscles. Getting a post-workout massage can help avoid that tight feeling you sometimes get after a lot of exercise. This is why sports professionals get a lot of massages.


Even allergies can be lessened with regular massage. Certain types of massages can clear sinus cavities and passageways, making it easier for you to breathe. This in turn helps you sleep better at night and get well sooner if you have a cold.

Puffiness and Swelling

Most of the time puffiness and swelling has to do with being dehydrated, but it can also be due to a build-up of toxins. Drink a lot of water before your massage to help clear your system even faster.


If you find that you’re tired a lot, it may be due to a build-up of toxins in your body that is preventing you from getting a sound night’s sleep. A massage as close to bedtime as you can manage will help you sleep better at night. And, sleeping better will give you more energy.


Most headaches are caused by tension and if you think about it, tension is a type of toxin that you don’t want to have inside your body. A good massage will help you release all that tension and thus help you lower incidents of headaches.

For some people, the idea that they have toxins in their body making them sick seems ridiculous.

But, for those who practice regular body detoxes via juices, water fasting, or eating clean – along with regular therapeutic massages – it’s a magical experience.

If you want to be serious about detoxing your body, adding massage will help.
