Relaxation is one of the main benefits of massages.

In a peaceful environment, with soft music and fragrances of aromatherapy, any massage frees your body from the accumulated tension, preventing you from producing cortisol (stress hormone) that can cause anxiety, but also headaches, stomach problems, etc.

In addition, massages improve mood and give you back the lost joy!

When anxiety begins to get the better of you and results in a frame of worry and fear that generates physical reactions, your body may experience a panic attack in response to the rise in blood pressure.

Now, therapeutic massages help to counteract this extreme of anxiety because they relax the muscles and reduce blood pressure and heart rate.

Massages have been proven to reduce the amount of norepinephrine that the body produces (a neurotransmitter that intensifies depression).

And this is particularly important for preventing or reducing irritability and depression, stimulating positive feelings, combating mood swings and improving socialization.

People with mental problems can see their quality of life increase with massage sessions and thus reduce the consequences and side effects of medication and treatments.
