Massage and health

Massage Therapy effectively promotes greater health of mind and body, especially when adapted as part of your regular healthy lifestyle. Massage not only feels good, it is physiologically beneficial for you. It literally alters your body chemistry.

Regular massage not only offers an opportunity for feeling better in the moment; it promotes longevity and quality of life. Today’s research shows that stress is associated with 80-90% of diseases. Studies show massage once a week can help modify the body’s stress response by reducing cortisol on average of 31%. Keeping cortisol levels low helps protect the heart, adrenals, and immune system. Massage studies also show a 28% increase in serotonin, a mood enhancing neurotransmitter; and when we feel better, it is easier to adapt other healthier patterns elsewhere in our life.
