When you are feeling stressed out, a good massage can help you become more relaxed. Beyond the physical relaxation you experience from a good massage, allowing your muscles to relieve tension, massage also helps improve your overall mood.

When you get a massage, cortisol levels are reduced, lowering your flight-or-fight response that occurs in an emergency.
