Benefits of Massage Therapy

One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm.


This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins - which are the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing.


Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine,

are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones

impair the immune system. 

Some of the physical benefits of massage therapy include:

  • Reduced muscle tension

  • Improved circulation

  • Stimulation of the lymphatic system

  • Reduction of stress hormones

  • Relaxation

  • Increased joint mobility and flexibility

  • Improved skin tone

  • Improved recovery of soft tissue injuries

  • Heightened mental alertness

  • Reduced anxiety and depression.
