facilitates tissue cleansing and is a valuable support to detoxification.
This vigorous work induces the release of toxins from the tissues
and their subsequent elimination from the body. Toxins accumulate
both in the cells and in the fluid surrounding cells, when the body
systems of elimination cannot keep up with toxin production or absorption,
mainly by an intestine compromised by bad digestion.
Our body cells
take in nutrients and oxygen from the blood, do work, (grow or create
products), and then give off wastes. These wastes are discharged
from the cells into the extra-cellular matrix where they undergo
an exchange with the blood stream for the nutrients coming in. The
blood transports these wastes to the liver to be detoxified and
then to the organs of elimination, the intestine, the kidneys, the
lungs and the skin, for final disposal.
When these organs
are burdened with excessive wastes, they show signs of their stress.
Rashes, pimples, or offensive body odor indicate the skin is stressed.
Frequent, painful, or urgent urination or dark or offensive smelling
urine indicates the kidneys are stressed. Gas, diarrhea and constipation
or green, mucous stools, or right sided chest pain indicates the
liver is stressed. Congestion, coughs or wheezing indicates the
lungs are stressed. Each of us will show signs of stress differently
depending on our inherent weaknesses and the nature of the noxious
of stress mean it is time to “detox” – to enhance
the elimination of wastes. To accomplish this, it is important to
boost the eliminative capacity of the liver, kidneys, lungs and
skin with detoxification techniques. As well, it is also important
to increase the movement of wastes out of the cells and tissues
where they are most concentrated and into the blood for transport
to these organs of elimination. This is accomplished with hydrotherapy,
exercise and massage therapy.
can turn the jelly-like extra-cellular matrix into a more liquid
state allowing the trapped toxins to be free to move along with
the extra cellular fluid (lymph) into the blood stream. This natural
loss of water and garbage from around cells not only allows the
cells to “clean house” more effectively, but brings
them closer together and nearer to their blood supply of nutrients
and hormonal control, in other words, a loss of water retention
and bloating. The result: your cells work more harmoniously and
more productively… and you look and feel great!
drink extra amounts of pure water before and after a massage to
further enhance your elimination and to replenish your body’s
supply of water.
