Why should you get a massage?  Massage has been shown to:

  • stimulates the body’s natural relaxation system
  • increases oxytocin, an important hormone for social interactions and bonding
  • has positive, additive effects on the immune system
  • decreases the production of stress hormones, such as cortisol
  • decreases the level of arginine vasopressin(AVP), a hormone related to aggressive behavior
  • alleviates symptoms of depression, anxiety, back pain, asthma, and fatigue
  • manages chronic neck pain with adequate doses and for short-term benefit
