Massage therapy has been shown to reduce our body’s level of cortisol – the stress hormone – by almost half. Why is that important? In today’s high-stress culture, our body’s level of cortisol tends to be higher than ideal causing impacts on everything from blood pressure, to immune system health, to blood sugar regulation. In addition to helping to reduce cortisol levels, massage also helps to elevate our body’s levels of serotonin and dopamine which are key in regulating mood levels.
So there you have it, massage = happy
