The Benefits of Relaxation through

Massage Therapy or Yoga Practice

When your body-mind is stressed, it creates hormones that have an irritating effect on the immune system. The immune system will automatically mobilize to fight the irritation caused by these elevated stress hormones - this weakens your body's overall ability to fight disease. Research shows that receiving regular therapeutic massage, or practicing Yoga regularly, stimulates a relaxation response in your body-mind which improves the way your immune system works. When your body is more relaxed, your immune system doesn't have to put as much energy into fighting that irritation, freeing it to deal more efficiently and rapidly with factors outside yourself (bacteria or viruses you might come into contact with, for example) that might cause your body to break down or get sick.

This is very important to consider at a time like this when the stresses of the Covid-19 Pandemic are coming at us from all sides.

Additionally, both therapeutic massage and Yoga-practice have been shown to:

Enhance circulation in the muscles

Increase flexibility

Tonify the joints

Assist in flushing toxins from the body

Give you greater ease of motion

Increase feelings of well-being

Decrease depression and anxiety

Diminish chronic pain
