How Does Massage Therapy Reduce Stress?

Have you thought at times that massage is a luxury? It sort of is but not really at the same time. Sounds a bit double Dutch I know and I did think that myself. Until I practicing massage therapy and learning how it benefits us in so many ways.


Today we’re sharing a blog by massageheights.com where you can read more about how massage therapy reduces stress.

Massage therapy relieves stress through a number of ways, aside from the massage itself. Our stress relief comes from the relaxing environment, soothing aromas, the healing hands of passionate practitioners...

Generally, massage therapy environments are made to encourage relaxation. Low lighting paired with comforting quiet and soft music allows you to disconnect from the outside world, and your electronics, so you can unwind and truly focus on the present.


Along with rebalancing your hormones, massage therapy relieves muscle tension. When you’re stressed, your muscles tighten in response, and when the stress ends, your muscles generally relax.
