Stress Relief

Stress Relief and a Better Immune System

Therapeutic massage reduces stress and enhances the immune system—it’s actually been scientifically proven.

13Studies done at the University of Miami’s Touch Research Institute show that blood levels of cortisol and other stress hormones are significantly reduced after a massage, and even more after a series of massages.

Also, blood levels of lymphocytes and natural killer cells—the cells that fight colds, flus, and cancers—are significantly increased after a massage.

We’ve all heard it said that massage relieves stress, but now we have scientific proof.

Isn’t that reason enough to give yourself the gift of regular massage?
