Massage helps alleviate Depression

Leave a comment

If you weren’t aware of the positive effects of massage already, research published in 2010 in PubMed(see the link below) clearly shows strong findings of the effects of massage therapy to help alleviate depressive symptoms and tendencies.


Studies conducted by the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami also provide convincing results that massage promotes relaxation and relieves stress. One study showed that people who received 15-minute massages twice a week experienced a reduction in job-related stress, anxiety and blood levels of the stress-hormone cortisol. Massage can also increase levels of serotonin, dopamine, endorphins and enkephalins, helping elevate your mood and enable better pain control. Thats only 15 mins twice a week! Imagine its effects with regular one hour sessions!
