Massage Relief for Depression, Stress and Anxiety

Does massage therapy have emotional benefits?

Just as important as the physical benefits, massage therapy provides many emotional benefits.

Massage has been shown to lower stress levels and feelings of anxiety.

A one-hour massage has been shown to lower cortisol in the body while also releasing serotonin, a hormone neurotransmitter sometimes called the “happy chemical”.

Serotonin reduces feelings of depression and carries signals between nerves and the body.

By lowering cortisol and increasing serotonin, massage therapy is boosting the body’s ability to fight off pain, anxiety and feelings of sadness.

Remember, as a massage therapist you need to protect yourself and only the best massage therapist insurance coverage will do!
