Massages are known for their ability to relax the recipient and allow them to let go of any stress they are carrying for the duration of their treatment. However did you know massages can do more than just that?
While it is no secret that receiving a massage can help relax you, it can affect your mood in other ways as well. Helping lower anxiety levels and help treat depression. A study done by the Touch Research Institute in Miami was able to see that massage therapy was about to lower the body’s cortisol, a stress hormone, by 53%. But doing more than just lessening the cortisol levels the body will produce more dopamine which is a feel good hormone.
Massage therapy is also known to help relieve headaches. Millions of americans suffer from migraines. Studies are showing that people who receive massages are less likely to get a migraine or a headache and those results can last up to three weeks after the massage.
Flexibility is more than just being able to do the splits. Flexibility affects your range of motion within your joints and can affect your day to day life. Receiving a massage will help you regain that movement and maintain it.
