Massage Therapy Benefits Your Health
Massage therapy has been found to improve blood circulation by increasing the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to cells.
Studies have shown a marked decrease in the hormones arginine vasopressin (AVP) and cortisol after one single massage session.
AVP constricts blood vessels and raises blood pressure, while cortisol is a well known stress hormone (1).
It improves the range of motion (ROM) and flexibility of your joints by breaking up movement limiting muscle adhesions.
Professional massage therapy successfully minimizes the negative impact of common ailments such as stress, muscle tightness, aches and pains, as well as anxiety and depression.
It has been proven to be helpful for pain management as it elevates the endorphin levels and promotes a sense of well being.
