With a handheld massager at home, gone are the days when you had to keep your masseur on speed-dial and pay a small fortune to help ease your aching muscles or strained back. Whether you choose a body roller, an electric massager or an infrared therapy machine, these nifty devices are designed to provide relief to your body and mind.
Since you are only massaging the muscles from the outside, the thought of detoxification may not cross your mind. However, massage improves blood circulation and stimulates the lymphatic system, responsible for helping your body get rid of toxins. It also helps fortify your immune system, allows better recovery from soft tissue injuries and improves joint flexibility and mobility.
