Massage Therapy for your Mental Health

Did you know that aside from physical benefits, massage therapy also provides numerous mental and emotional benefits? 

If you’re struggling with stress and anxiety, then taking time out to get a massage may be exactly what you need. Stress and anxiety are tough to handle and affects many people. Massage therapy can help decrease you heart rate, blood pressure and cortisol levels. It also activates the sympathetic nervous system in your body, which can help lower stress, decrease anxiety and improve your mood. 

The power of touch has an amazing effect on body and mind.  Massage therapy stimulates the production of serotonin and dopamine, the neurotransmitters that promote well-being and the feeling of happiness. Serotonin consequently stimulates production of melatonin, which helps regulate the body’s circadian rhythms, improving your sleep patterns. Decreasing the overall tension and pain in your body will also lead to fewer sleep disturbances. This gives your body and mind the healthy rest it deserves. 

So, if you’re struggling with stress and anxiety or having trouble sleeping, Massage therapy may be the way to go.
