The techniques used can improve your circulation by speeding up the movement of blood around your veins and arteries. Also techniques with more pressure when moving towards the heart, can help the heart to pump blood more efficiently around the body.
Massage Therapy also helps to encourage circulation and drainage in the lymph system, helping it to work more efficiently to remove waste and toxins from the body. This is particularly beneficial if you are trying to fight an infection.
How? Blood carries oxygen and nutrients that are needed throughout your body. Oxygen and nutrients provide you with energy and help to repair and regenerate cells. Your circulatory system also works with your lymphatic system to remove waste from the body.

Undoubtedly yes it is called erythema when the body's skin hows slight signs of redness at the surface showing the peripheral increase in circulation but it will also be working on a much deeper level on both the blood circulation and fluid circulation of the lymph etc

During the massage, blood in the veins and smaller arteries is moved, giving an immediate short-term improved circulation.
After the massage, the relaxed muscles and other tissues allow for better circulation - a tight muscle restricts blood flow.
Massage also improves lymph flow.

Yes massage helps improve your circulation. Think of a wet sponge. Once fully soaked in water the sponge can't take in any more until some of the water is squeezed back out. This is similer to how massage improves the circulation by relaxing tight muscles that would impede normal circulation of blood and lymph

Yes massage is good for circulation. A lot of the time reduced circulation is do to muscle tightness which is not allowing the blood flow freely. By relaxing the muscles it allows your body to work with the flow of blood not against it.

Absolutely, especially Swedish Massage is designed to move fluids.

Yes, definitely! The techniques used during Swedish massage aid the movement of blood around the body, this is further enhanced by using directional pressure towards the heart. The lymphatic system is also stimulated, facilitating the removal of waste products and toxins from the body.
