Health Benefits of Massage Therapy

Health benefits of massage

An immediate benefit of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This is a result because massage prompts the release of endorphins, which release brain chemicals known as neurotransmitters, which produce a feeling of well-being.

Levels of stress hormones, such as cortisol, Adrenalin, and norepinephrine, are also reduced. Some studies suggest that high-stress hormones impair the immune system.

Some of the physical benefits of massage include:

  • improves blood flow/circulation
  • reduces muscle tension
  • stimulation of the lymphatic system
  • reduction of stress hormones
  • relaxing, creating a calm peace of mind
  • increased joint mobility & flexibility
  • improved skin tone
  • improved recovery of soft tissue injuries
  • heightened mental alertness
  • reduced anxiety – depression

We provide our services to men, women, and couples. In addition, we have a room specifically designed for couples for maximum comfort and relaxation. We are located at the intersection of Mexico Road and K Highway in the strip center next to QT in O’Fallon, MO.
