Massage Therapy Helps Build A Healthy Immune System

Can massage therapy give your immune system a boost?

Recent research finds that people who undergo even one session of massage experience significant changes in their immune and endocrine responses.

Researchers compared the effects of either a 45-minute session of Swedish massage or light touch.

Blood samples were collected before and after each massage session, and researchers found that those who received Swedish massage experienced observable changes in lymphocytes, which play an important role in a healthy immune system.

Massage offers relaxation and stress relief. Chronic stress impairs your body’s inflammatory immune response, increasing your susceptibility to infection.

Massage therapy does not only feel good but is also good for you!
