It stimulates skin receptors that affect the nervous system and promotes the production of endorphins, dopamine and serotonin.

These have an anxiolytic effect and trigger a feeling of well-being that relaxes and soothes. Massage therapy therefore reduces stress, promotes good mood and helps fight against depression.

Improve Sleep

By playing on the nervous system, the massage will soothe your body mentally and physically, it relaxes tension, and helps regulate your natural cycle. You will then enjoy a deeper sleep and you will find a good energy more easily. The massage also relaxes the muscles and thus relaxes the accumulated tension for a more comfortable sleep.

Relieving Pain

Massage therapy helps relieve muscle tension, which helps reduce chronic pain especially in the back, neck and shoulders. Massage is a natural method so you will not be addicted, unlike some drugs prescribed to fight against this type of pain.

The massage acts directly to promote your health, because by decreasing the stress it helps to prevent the appearance of certain heart and intestinal diseases, it also promotes the regulation of the weight and the good functioning of the digestive system.

Facilitate Blood Circulation

The pressure points induced by the massage play directly on the blood system and help promote circulation. Better circulation avoids feeling of heavy legs, dilation of blood vessels or the appearance of varicose veins.

Good blood circulation helps restore energy to the body, promotes the elimination of toxins and gives it a better tone while preventing cardiovascular disease.

Strengthen The Immune System

Massage therapy also acts on the lymphatic system, which helps the immune system function properly. The massage stimulates the circulation of the lymph through the body and thus reinforces its defense action against organisms, bacteria and viruses. The body is better prepared to protect against diseases and your overall health is improved.

By acting on the nervous system can have a positive impact on the entire body both physically and mentally. Because everything is linked, if you are stressed you will sleep less well, which will weaken your immune system, lower your energy and expose you more easily to different types of diseases.

Massage therapy is directly beneficial to the whole body while being a natural method. Although sometimes several sessions are needed and the effects can be felt afterwards, a good massage will really benefit your overall health.

You can also intensify its effects by combining massage sessions with aromatherapy and the use of essential oils, mixed with massage oil, for their therapeutic virtues.

The combination of these two techniques will be particularly effective in reducing stress and strengthening immune defenses through the antiseptic actions of oils.
