There are many physical and emotional benefits to massage therapy. While the physical benefits are more easily identified, there are many emotional benefits as well. The sensation of touch provides a feeling of calm, safety and soothing. We feel confident and more self assured by receiving and giving touch. Touch reduces stress and creates a happy and contented feeling by releasing serotonins and endorphins into the body. Serotonin can be thought of as the happy chemical. Serotonin is responsible for making you feel happy, and helps your mood.
