Why is a massage in London relaxing?
All massages have a physiological effect upon the body, reducing stress by the increased production of endorphins, serotonin and dopamine. Simultaneously, cortisol levels are lowered and the tissues made more elastic.
Endorphins, serotonin and dopamine are all neurotransmitters, released by the autonomic system. Endorphins relieve anxiety, serotonin alleviates depression and dopamine boosts motivation. By stimulating the autonomic system, these positive hormones are turbocharged, providing the body and mind with much-needed support. As for cortisol, when the levels in the body drop, stress reduces too. Released from the adrenal gland, once cortisol enters the blood, it can trigger that dreaded ‘fight or flight’ response. Massage helps to flush out the cortisol, replacing it with the positive hormones listed above.
