From a handshake to a long embrace to a therapeutic massage, touch is more than just a love language, It’s a proven way to enhance both physical and mental health and wellness.
Here at MassageBook, we do not believe that massage therapy is a luxury. We believe that massage therapy is a necessity. There is a powerful connection between the skin and the brain. Massage not only releases tensions within the body but fuels the body’s need for physical touch.
During a massage session, while your therapist is working through knots and tight muscles, he or she is also communicating with your nervous system through physical touch.
Massage therapy has been found to reduce physical and emotional pain, anxiety, and depression. Have you noticed an improvement in your mood after a therapeutic massage? During a massage session, endorphins are released which the brain positively responds to in the form of feeling happy, calm, and taken care of.
When you make massage a priority, you are also making your mental and physical health a priority. Make time for “me time” part of your routine.
