The benefits of massage

Massage is known as one of the oldest healing traditions. One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins, the brain chemicals that produce feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones such as adrenalin are also reduced. Other benefits of massage include:

  • Speeds recovery from exercise-induced fatigue
  • Increases the blood’s oxygen capacity by 10-15%
  • Reduces muscle tension, aches and pains
  • Increased joint mobility and flexibility
