Biological Benefits from Deep Tissue Massage

Researchers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles have discovered that one session of deep tissue massage will give significant biological benefits. These benefits include lowering the level of cortisol, the hormone involved in stress, and increasing white blood cells, which can boost the body’s immunity.
 
A single deep tissue massage will also result in increased levels of oxytocin, a neurotransmitter in the brain that is associated with contentment and satisfaction. It has proved helpful in the treatment of drug addiction.
