“To touch can be to give life,” - Michelangelo.
In our current state of the world where there is a greater number of people working from home, the power of touch is more important than ever. As a basic, primal need without touch we can begin to feel anxious and depressed. Research shows that one of the most effective ways to benefit from the therapeutic benefits of touch is through massage. That's why in our Signature Facial and Signature Pedicure we take extra care to provide a relaxing massage with your health and well-being in mind.
Here are six health benefits from massage:
Stimulated the release of hormones that reduce anxiety, stress, and pain.
Lowered levels of stress hormones which reduce heart rate, lower blood pressure, slow breathing, and relax muscles.
Increased levels of oxytocin which is a hormone that increases social bonding and behaviors like trustworthiness, generosity, and empathy.
Reduced activation of pain receptors in the spinal cord and muscles.
Blocked the production of inflammatory cytokines which stops swelling and inflammation of muscle tissue.
Increased blood flow to muscles, connective tissue, and the lymph nodes.
