[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Do you think massage therapy can boost a person’s immune system? Research states it actually can. Previously, massage was a luxury most people cannot afford. However, at present, it is becoming a part of a healthy lifestyle that most people take advantage of. Every single day, we utilize our bodies — we stress out our body and mind. Our daily activities even takes an emotional toll on ourselves. Most people know that massage can help relax a person’s mind and body. But, here comes the question: “Does it really help boost our immune system?” Multiple studies have found out that massage helps reduce cortisol (a type of stress hormone) levels within the body. It also helps decrease levels of vasopressin (aggressive hormone) in the blood. Because massage helps to improve blood and lymphatic flow, it has multiple benefits for an entire person’s body. And that includes the immune system.
