To define it broadly, ‘massage therapy’ refers to the application of pressure on affected areas in different intensities to relieve stress and stiffness.

All our decisions are made on two aspects within our nervous system: the sympathetic and parasympathetic. The first one controls immediate decisions like reflex actions based on the flight or fight condition. It warns the body when in danger and responds in the manner most beneficial to it. The parasympathetic on the other hand analyses everything before taking a decision and often results in a lot of anxiety. This affects the system more than visible to the eye and in long-term manners.

Getting a massage always feels so therapeutic because it works on the parasympathetic nervous system to make you feel calm and relaxed. This is because on the inside, stress producing hormones are getting reduced and at the same time endorphins that assist wellbeing are being released from the brain. Overall, this produces the effect of immediate peace.
