Massage therapy treats the body, mind and spirit- but what does that really mean? Massage benefits for the mind live in your neurohormonal system created by the hypothalamus in the brain. The hypothalamus regulates the hormones that are released in our body directly effecting our mood, sense of spiritual and physical wellbeing. Many therapists and health care providers have assumed the benefits of massage therapy but it is not until recently that we have invested money into research that will prove it.
The TOUCH Research Institute at the University of Miami has successfully conducted experiments proving what happens in our brain during or after a treatment of massage therapy. What they found is that cortisol levels dropped–stress hormone, which can represent inflammation. Other neurohormonal chemicals released by massage therapy are serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin. Physical benefits are obvious but let’s list some of them here: Reduced inflammation, decreased pain, Improved range of motion in the joints, lengthening and shortening muscles (used for posture corrections), and to relax overused muscles by encouraging the lactic acid in the individual muscles to transfer into the lymphatic system and blood stream, rather than out of the body.
Now the spirit! The biggest kept secret of human race: the spirit benefits from massage therapy by aligning mind and body together. The balance of the mind and body allows you to directly communicate with your spirit. This happens by letting go of the past, physically and emotionally, and acknowledging how powerful the mind is with habitual thought processes. Massage therapy is a tool and one single gateway to tap into the mind, body and spirit.
Well you’re in luck, studies have proven that massage therapy can benefit you and others around you. What! How? Dopamine and oxytocin are the nuerohormones that make you feel satisfied and pleasured. When your system is flooded with pleasure and satisfaction, the same hormones get released in people you interact with–like a reflection.

Lower cortisol levels allows your body to send its energy to the digestion system improving your metabolism. Having a balanced metabolism will help you lose the weight you gained faster, regulates digestion, give you clear skin and makes you a vibrant energy being.
