Spring is almost here. But at this time of year, many people are experiencing some winter blues. WebMD reviewed more than a dozen studies that revealed how massage can fight depression by lowering cortisol levels.
Cortisol is the body’s response to stress, and massage therapy lowers it by as much as 50%. At the same time, massage provides many benefits and can also increase the levels of serotonin and dopamine, which are both neurotransmitters that help stabilize your mood.
If you or someone you love is experiencing the winter blues, schedule a massage today and help get through this last push before spring.
