Congestion is what steals our quality of life.
Definition of congestion is the slowed, sluggish, or stopped movement of blood toward its normal outflows. Places of congestion in our bodies are where believe toxins accumulate. Places where their pressures build.
Congestion is the source of much of our somatic pain as inflammatory cycles are spawned as vessels become distended. And, congestion is definitely a primary coconspirator in the perpetuation of chronic somatic difficulties.
Imagine the human body as a whole experiencing significant stress: cringing, shortening, narrowing toward the center and even sometimes twisting, thus producing enormous contraction of the external somatic tissues, pushing juxtaposed bones to the limits of their normal range within their joint capsules and potentiating the protective response that out soft tissues are dedicated to - protecting our joints. Internally, this cringing, shortening, narrowing and twisting adds resistance to the delivery and return of the blood supply. Together, these internal and external effects of stress are the causative factors of congestion and the predominant reason that needs to seek massage therapy out. It assists you to reduce congestion and regain and maintain your quality of life.- Dale Alexander, LMT, PhD
