Are you trying to implement a healthier life style? Studies suggest that the benefits of massage extend beyond treating muscle pain; massage has also been found to have an immune boosting effect that increases lymphocytes which are cells that help the immune system defend the body against disease. Massage can also decrease the hormone arginine vasopressin which is a hormone that contributes to aggressive behavior as well as significantly decrease the stress hormone cortisol. Imagine the benefits your body will receive if you incorporate massage into part of your healthy lifestyle routine. Come see us at Atlantic Spine Clinic in Mt. Pleasant and receive a massage to not only target specific muscle pain, but also aid in your journey to achieving overall health and wellbeing.
