There are many ways that massage can assist in eliminating waste. Circulation is key. Massage helps to speed up blood in turn any waste product in the body is eliminated three times faster than normal. When waste is eliminated it can be done by coughing, crying (emotional waste), farts, hiccup or bile. During massage sessions, I've seen all of these forms of elimination occur. Often after a massage there is an urge to urinate. When this occurs, the filtration process of the kidneys is sped up. For the respiratory system, the internal process to cleansing is simply breathing. Something as simple as mediating by taking 10 minutes to breath deep and exhale slowly to calm the body and mind. Its' job is to also allow enough oxygen to travel to cells and eliminate gaseous waste. Taking in oxygen helps to expel carbon dioxide and waste product.  Another way to help eliminate waste and detox is by massaging the back with strokes around the upper and lower regions.

Once the body runs through it's detox process, the client usually will feel relief and open air passages.
