Massage

How Does Massage Work?

 Massage causes physiological changes in your body through:

The relaxation response, which is an involuntary, yet predictable response of the nervous system to massage techniques and touch.

 Mechanical responses, which are physical effects that occur in the body when pressure is applied to the soft tissues  
Together, these responses can produce physical and emotional benefits.

 What is the relaxation response?

In a massage, a caring, safe touch is an invitation to relax. This, together with pain relief, generally produces a "relaxation response."

 The relaxation response is a state in which your heart and breathing rate slow, your blood pressure goes down, your production of stress hormones decreases, and your muscles relax. The relaxation response also seems to increase the available level of serotonin, which is a chemical in the body that positively affects emotions and thoughts. While this information is promising, more studies are needed to directly confirm the relationship between massage and levels of serotonin in the brain.


 The relaxation response may decrease the physical effects of stress and reduce the risks associated with stress, such as hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, anxiety, insomnia, persistent fatigue, sexual dysfunction, digestive disorders, and psychological issues--to name a few.
