Getting a massage feels amazing. In fact, you begin feeling better before the therapist even enters the room.
You’re in a dark, quiet space surrounded by calming music and soothing scents. The cool sheets feel smooth on your skin. And once your massage starts, all that tied up tension and stress begins to get released through the power of touch. Why does it feel so good? Your brain releases feel-good chemicals and pain diminishes. The therapist’s touch causes an immediate reaction in your brain. As soon as your skin’s nerve cells feel pressure, they signal the brain to release feel-good chemicals called endorphins, which boost your mood and give you a natural high. As a result, stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline begin to decrease and the overall effect is one of euphoria and bliss. If you have real aches or pains, the morphine-like effect from the endorphins will help diminish them by blocking pain signals from the brain. And if your muscles are sore after a rigorous workout, a good rubdown will actually help them heal faster. Researchers found that massage decreases the inflammation caused by exercise and increases the occurrence of cell repair.
