Need to de-stress? Look no further than a therapeutic massage at Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa in Godfrey, Illinois. Read on to discover how therapeutic massage can improve your mental and physical well-being.

How therapeutic massage benefits your mind and body

Science backs up the benefits of massage. Here are five key ways how:

Reduces stress 

Massage can decrease cortisol, a stress hormone responsible for anxiety, depression, and weight gain. A study published in the International Journal of Neuroscience found that massage therapy reduced cortisol levels and increased serotonin and dopamine levels, which are associated with mood regulation and relaxation.

Relieves pain

Massage can help alleviate chronic pain and reduce inflammation by improving blood circulation and releasing the feel-good hormone known as endorphins.

Improves sleep 

By reducing stress and promoting relaxation, massage can improve the quality of your sleep. Specifically, research has shown massage therapy benefits those with insomnia related to menopause and congestive heart failure.

Improves flexibility

Regular massage can help improve your range of motion, muscle tone, and flexibility. It’s why so many elite and professional athletes regularly use massage therapy. 

Boosts immune system

Massage can increase the production of white blood cells, which helps fight off infection and disease.
