1.Hydrates the waste and the body. (Hydrated bodily fluids are able to carry nutrients and waste more effectively, these fluids include lymph, blood, mucus, intercellular fluid and extra cellular fluid)
2. Softens and loosens waste. (It is easier for the bowl to evacuate softened, hydrated waste than a hard, dehydrated mass)
3. Water enters the bowel, softening and loosing waste, this creates the reflex for evacuation. The colon evacuates through normal peristalsis. This may be repeated several times during a session, thereby exercising the muscles which make up the colon.
The proper massage relaxes muscles, easing and soothing your aches and pains. It restores balance to our body, making life better for us.
"Peer-reviewed medical research has shown that the benefits of massage include pain relief, reduced trait anxiety and depression, and temporarily reduced blood pressure, heart rate, and state anxiety. Theories behind what massage might do include blocking nociception (gate control theory), activating the parasympathetic nervous system which may stimulate the release of endorphins and serotonin, preventing fibrosis or scar tissue, increasing the flow of lymph, and improving sleep but such effects are yet to be supported by well designed clinical studies."Source Wikipedia
