Massage therapy has proven remarkably effective for stress relief. It results in lower levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, while increasing oxytocin and serotonin which act as mood relaxers. Giving your body the experience of being truly relaxed makes it easier to recreate that sensation in everyday life. As if that weren’t enough incentive to schedule regular sessions at Massage Envy Spa, massage also has other beneficial effects. It can help improve your posture, promote blood circulation, relieve stiff muscles, lower blood pressure, and even increase your flexibility.
