The Many Benefits of Massage
and why you should receive one
"Is there something beyond the fact that it feels good?"

Last fall there was a test with 53 healthy adults who received one of two types of touch treatments. Blood tests revealed that those who had a Swedish massage with moderate pressure experienced decreases in stress hormones and increases in white blood cells, indicating a boost in the immune system. Meanwhile volunteers who had a "light touch" treatment showed higher levels of oxytocin, a hormone that promotes bonding. Based on the findings, Mark Rapaport, MD,believes that massage might be effective in treating inflammatory and autoimmune conditions.

"We're finding biological changes associated with a single massage session," he says. "That's saying something."

p.s. sorry about this being off my page a little bit.. I couldn't get the margins to fit right without it being too wide.


  1. manth,

    I think it looks beautiful! the only thing I would change on it...

    "is there something beyond the fact that it feels good"

    it sounds a big vague to me.

    maybe specify what you mean by that sentence. like..."are there any other benefits to massage besides it feeling good?"

    just a thought :)
