Massage is particularly beneficial for issues such as lower-back discomfort. Additionally, studies have shown show back massage lessens levels of the anxiety by regulating the hormone cortisol while boosting “happy” hormones serotonin and dopamine. In addition, Massage can reduce or eliminate mild to extreme headaches, improve performance at work and in athletics, and some have reported a decrease in pain caused by fibromyalgia. Many professional athletes use Massage as a way to alleviate pain, stiff muscles, or other soreness associated with their intense training.

If you have trouble sleeping, consider Massage as a way to relax. Studies have shown that body work can help produce delta waves which are associated with restful sleep according to the Touch Research Institute.
