Discover the Health Benefits of Massages

Massages are one of the best natural remedies to maintain physical well-being and consequent emotional balance. The list of massage benefits is extensive and, in addition to a feeling of physical well-being, it also includes:


  • Improved blood circulation and the immune system;
  • Greater oxygenation of cells and consequent relief of chronic pain;
  • Muscle relaxation and elimination of accumulated stress;
  • Disappearance of headaches and the feeling of fatigue;
  • Reduction of blood pressure in patients suffering from hypertension;
  • Prevention of muscular injuries in high competition athletes;
  • Decreased level of harmful toxins for the proper functioning of the body, such as lactic acid.

Improved sleep quality is another of the benefits of massage that is achieved through muscle and mental relaxation. This is because massage reduces levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, and stimulates the production of endorphins and serotonin, hormones that promote relaxation and are also responsible for deep sleep (REM sleep).

To get the most out of the massage, it is important to ensure that it is performed by a certified therapist who knows how to apply the most appropriate technique according to the patient's needs.
