Massage Therapy is More Than Just Relaxation

Getting a massage can be more than just relaxing. According to numerous studies, a single massage session can result in both physical and emotional improvements.

So what exactly are the benefits of massage therapy?

Stress Relief:

This is what comes to mind the most when thinking of getting a massage. Clinical studies show a one and a half hour massage session can lower heart rate, cortisol levels and insulin levels.

Research shows a massage can lower your heart rate and blood pressure, relax your muscles and increase the production of endorphins – your bodies “feel good” chemical. Serotonin and dopamine are also released through a massage which can result in the feeling of calm relaxation.

Improves Posture

Daily life can bring unneeded tension which can be felt in the neck and back. A lot of use are stuck at a computer or breaking our backs with hard manual labor – this can result in poor posture. Massage can correct this by allowing the body to reinforce healthy and natural movements. Your muscles can relax and loosen with a massage and allow your body to position itself in a natural pain-free posture.
