The benefits of massage are many but there may be some reasons why massage is so good for you that you haven’t thought about!!
Aside from reducing aches and pains and feeling great, a massage can help to alleviate depression. Massage reduces the stress hormone cortisol and boosts the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin. Getting a massage boosts your spirits!
Massage can promote better and more healthy sleep! Massage has an effect on the brain’s delta waves that are connected to deep sleep patterns! And, during the day, massage promotes better brain function so that you can enjoy being more alert and have better brain power!
Getting a massage boosts your immune system and can help to ward off infections and viruses. Massage increases the body’s white blood cells, which fight disease! Headaches and migraines can be reduced or eliminated by massage techniques.
Massage increases blood flow, which increases the metabolism and, in turn helps to promote cell turnover and a healthy skin! Your complexion will benefit from a massage!
Massage increases the detoxification process of the body, making you more well every time you have a massage! Lymphatic drainage occurs and more nutrients are able to enter the cells and build the body.
