An intuitive remedy, massage works on many different levels. A natural path to physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental healing, it’s an almost instinctive reaction to pain and discomfort.

Depending on needs and techniques, pressing, rubbing and kneading skin, muscle, and fat lowers the levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) while boosting production of feel-good dopamine and serotonin. This is why masage is often considered a crucial factor in integrative and holistic medicine.
