Massage Therapy has a profound influence on your immune system. Most people know that massage aides in relaxation, improved circulation, reduces stress and relieves aches and pains. In addition, studies have shown that during a massage levels of Cortisol a stress hormone is reduced and levels of serotonin a mood regulator and levels of white blood cells to fight off bacteria and infection are increased. It is especially important to boost your immune system as we approach the winter months to protect against cold, flu and other seasonal illnesses.
