Blood circulation is increased during the treatment so the necessary nutrients transported to every cells thus the regeneration process enhanced, waste products and toxins delivered away so detoxification can begin. Lymph flow, so often sluggish from sitting all day long and being indoors all the time is increased, if there is any congestion that is manually moved along, excess water from the tissues, water retention and swelling on the legs helped with long effleurage movements so the urinary system can get rid of it.

Nervous system deeply relaxing and letting go of current events and stress what in turn increases digestion and hormonal balance. In time of stress digestion, reproduction and hormone production decreases or stopped -except stress hormones-so does regeneration that is why we must hit reset button time to time to regain balance.
During the nurturing treatment when you really feel cared for it is only natural to release a bit of emotional burden. Eyes might be wet as the long-suppressed heartbreak, hurt or loneliness leaves the body for once and for all. We carry too much and often so stressed and hurried back to normality in the middle of a grieving process or separation, betrayal or family tragedy that we can’t cope and best we can do is suppressing everything painful.But that energy doesn’t go away, just lodging somewhere in the body and start causing problems.
With a help of an experienced, non-judgmental, emphatic therapist all this accumulated negative energy can leave safely and nicely, giving space for ultimate healing, increased energy, and rejuvenation.
