What really makes you feel so good during a massage? There are specific neurohormones, hormones produced by the nervous system, and neurotransmitters released during massage that that benefit your overall state of mind and well-being. Massage has been proven over the years to reduce stress, anxiety, tension, and pain in the body, but why? Massage therapy elevates levels of dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin in the body while reducing levels of the stress hormone cortisol in the body. Massage regulates our body's neurohormones by either stimulating or inhibiting the systems to get the body back to a proper balance, or homeostasis, and "massage increases the availability of all neurohormones affecting brain chemistry."
