Benefits of Massage Therapy
When you are in a state of relaxation, your heart and breathing rates slow down, your blood pressure falls, the production of stress hormones decreases and your muscles relax. Regular massage can help you carry this relaxed state with you and help lower your stress levels as you go about your day.
