Improved mental wellbeing


Massage has been reported to increase levels of serotonin, dopamine and neurotransmitters in the body that help reduce depression.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that regulates a person’s mood, hunger and sleep. Massage promotes the release of serotonin, which promotes a sense of well-being thus explaining the positive mood experienced immediately after a massage.

Dopamine, another neurotransmitter which is elevated by massage, helps to form the ‘reward’ system in the brain: a massage which is viewed as a ‘reward’ in this situation induces the same kind of pleasure as, say a glass of wine.

Massage can clear troublesome emotions and psychological blocks.
