There are many ways in which the benefits of massage can improve the quality of your life. Many people think the benefits of massage are restricted to relaxation (which in itself is hugely important!). But there are numerous other health and well-being benefits.
The skin is the largest organ of the human body and is packed with nerve endings. The technique works by soothing soft tissue and encouraging relaxation. It is especially effective in treating ‘vicious cycle’ complaints. For instance, a tension headache is often self-sustaining because the pain makes the sufferer clench the affected muscles even harder. This, in turn, creates more pain. A thorough neck and shoulder massage can release muscle tension and break the pain cycle. include: pain relief, reduced anxiety and depression, and reduced blood pressure, heart rate.
The release of endorphins and serotonin can: prevent fibrosis or scar tissue, increase the flow of lymph, and improve sleep. Relief from pain due to musculoskeletal injuries and other causes is one of the other major benefits of massage. It can also relieve tension headaches.
Modern studies have shown that massage can be used to successfully treat a variety of disorders, including:
- Back or neck pain
- Soft tissue injuries
- Chronic pain
- High blood pressure

This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins, the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine, are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
