There are so many benefits when it comes to massage therapy. One of which is helping to reduce anxiety.
Many Americans struggle with anxiety daily. They hold much of this stress in their shoulders, back and neck, and massages can be specifically targeted to those areas. No matter where you carry tension, studies have shown that massage increases your body’s levels of Oxytocin and serotonin, which results in reducing stress. When your body is relaxed, your nervous system responds with a lower heart rate and improved breathing. Deep sleep becomes easier to achieve, because your muscles remember the sensation vividly enough to recreate it at home, which enables you to enjoy a healthier life.
