“ Massage Therapy strengthens the immune system, combats depression, and reduces pain and stress hormones. “
We are living in a time where ongoing and changing COVID restrictions and remote or hybrid work for many employees means less face-to-face time with friends, family, and colleagues. This can spur feelings of isolation and disconnection, and the absence of human touch adds to stress levels and raise the risk of burnout.
This is because connection, physical or emotional, with other humans releases certain hormones that make us feel good, such as oxytocin.
