Effects of therapeutic massage on metabolism

The massage increases the temperature of the treated area, increasing the blood flow by vasodilation providing more oxygen.

Beneficial changes also occur in the balance of hormones and neurotransmitters.

The massage reduces blood levels of cortisol (stress hormone) and excess catecholamines (related to high blood pressure and stress).

Increases serotonin (neurotransmitter).

Increase melatonin.

Massage increases the production of endorphins (the so-called “internal morphine” for its similar chemical structure and, therefore, its very effects of analgesia and well-being),

It has been shown that massage has a positive effect on virtually all systems.

Having this knowledge, we can use them as a basis to understand the scientific basis of the therapeutic action of massage in different pathologies.
