Massage for Mental Health
We all lead busy lives and often, it can all get a bit too much. Regular massages can help your mental health.
Massage can decrease cortisol levels (our primary stress hormone) by up to 50% after just a thirty-minute session. Consistently high cortisol levels can negatively alter the brain’s structure and level of functioning and directly contribute to the onset of anxiety by destroying neurons in the hypothalamus.
Massage simultaneously increases levels of both dopamine and serotonin (our primary feel-good neurotransmitters in the brain) by up to 30% after a thirty-minute session. Dopamine deficiency has been linked to low levels of motivation and an inability to feel pleasure—two of the most common symptoms of depression.
Treat your body and boost your mental health.
