Massage does not only affect our muscles by decreasing tension, massage also has an effect on the Endocrine System which is the system that controls our hormones.
Massage can affect our hormones in various ways: * It can increase dopamine and serotonin levels in the brain, these are linked to stress reduction and reduced depression.
* It reduces cortisol levels; high levels are linked to elevated stress and it is also known to reduce our immune function which in turn can make us sick!
* Massage is also known to reduce adrenaline and noradrenaline which helps us to relax and destress
