What does massage do to your body?
The old physician Hippocrates said it already, we like it. But why is massage so good for you? In this article we tell you more about it.
The undivided attention you get, makes you come all the way to yourself again and that your body relaxes again and then restores itself. The body has a natural self-healing ability which is stimulated with a massage. That way you often feel reborn afterwards. This is because the production of endorphins (the happiness hormone) and the production of oxytocin (the cuddle hormone) are stimulated. These body-specific substances reduce stress and increase your happiness. Because your muscles are well circulated again after a massage, they feel smooth and relaxed again. All of this also does a lot of good for your immune system, which reduces the chance of illness. And that is nice!
