Benefits of massage therapy

Reduce stress

The long-term effects of stress can take emotional and physical tolls. Massage therapy relieves stress by reducing epinephrine and increasing serotonin and dopamine levels. Serotonin and dopamine are linked with the brain's reward system and increased levels of happiness.

Manage pain

Pain can negatively affect a person's quality of life and impede recovery from illness or injury. Massage therapy will stimulate endorphin production, allowing you to manage pain naturally. Massages also provide physical benefits:

  • Reduce muscle tension
  • Improve circulation
  • Improve range of motion

Increase immune function

Massage therapy can help boost immune system strength by increasing the activity level of the body's "killer T cells," which fight off viruses.

Boost mental health and wellness

Massage therapy boosts dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin neurotransmitters. These chemicals all play an important role in alleviating stress, anxiety and depression.

Losing weight, improving my nutrition, and increasing my energy levels throughout the day were my main concerns when I first walked into Total Health Nutrition Center. Throughout my health journey at Total Health, I learned to listen to my body and learned that victories aren’t always on the scale. Paige Welsh was a huge inspiration, she educated me about living a more holistic and healthy life by balancing my social, mental, and physical health. My favorite improvement thus far is my increase in energy levels and my overall healthy lifestyle change that was all achieved through Total Health. Read More

What was your health like before you came to see us? Poor – I had frequent, chronic issues with digestion, stomach pain and feel sick in general. I also had significant depression. My body temperature seemed to fluctuate and I often had cold hands and feet. How is your health now? Very good – I’ve learned some of my triggers for stomach pain and related issues.
