Massage & Immune Support

It's that time of year, the seasons are changing and it's time to arm your immune system for the coming months. Did you know that outside of diet and exercise, massage also helps to boost your immune system?
Massage primarily aids in relaxation which increases the
Serotonin responsible for regulating mood, hunger and sleep. Platelets carry serotonin to sites of injury to promote healing. Massage decreases levels of  Cortisone in the body, this is the stress hormone that constricts blood vessels and elevates blood pressure. Cortisone attacks Natural Killer Cells, a lymphocyte that protects the body from viral infections.
