I spent 8 years as a massage therapist and a taught massage therapy. I have tried to educate people that massage is not a luxury; it is part of your healthcare. That human touch is essential to our health and well-being. Science has shown that touch heals. If you don't like being touched, you might be crabby and mean (no offense). But if you like to be touched, then you must be a happier person. When you hug someone, it feels good and 20 seconds of hugging releases serotonin and oxytocin. And often, touch therapy such as massage therapy and cuddling are recommended to people. Massage can help with mood and emotional disorders. The following benefits to massage are.
Reduced stress and increased relaxation
Reduced pain, muscle soreness, and tension
Improved circulation, energy, and alertness
Lowering heart rate and blood pressure
Improved immune support
Released feel-good hormones
Improved sleep patterns
Improved posture and flexibility
