Lasting Effects of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy can reduce pain, muscle inflammation, assist in recovery from working out and help prevent injury. Regular massage therapy is also known to release additional serotonin and dopamine into the body. These are naturally occurring chemicals in the body known to reduce stress and anxiety. Over time, consistent massage therapy sessions continue to stimulate the release of these chemicals, aiding you in the ability to deal with acute stress or anxiety as well.
Regular massage therapy is known to induce relaxation into patients and is even linked with treatment of some psychological issues. Massage therapy improves the capacity for relaxation and can improve mood, creativity, and overall mental health. Continuing therapy sessions is strongly encouraged to maintain the benefits of massage and retain your clarity and ability to handle acute anxiety and tension.
