massage effects on the brain

Did you know that therapeutic massage has a significant effect on the brain?

Stress, anxiety and depression are hot topics in the world of health and wellness. They can be emotionally and physically debilitating and affect individuals of various ages and walks of life.

Massage creates a mind-body connection by boosting the “feel good” hormones, including serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin. Conversely, the stress-related hormones, like cortisol and adrenaline, are suppressed.

After a massage treatment, clients generally feel a greater sense of relaxation and overall well-being. The possibility for physical relaxation to translate into mental relaxation is a powerful weapon in the fight against emotional stress.
