Researchers at the University of Miami School of Medicine reviewed studies that measured the stress hormone cortisol in participants before and immediately after massage and found that the therapy lowered levels by up to 53 percent. Massage also increased serotonin and dopamine, which are both neurotransmitters that help reduce depression.

5 Health and Wellness Benefits of Massage Therapy
Control stress. The long-term effects of stress can take a toll on both emotional and physical health. Massage therapy may relieve stress and conditions associated with it, such as tension headaches.
Increase immunity. Medical research indicates that massage therapy can help boost the immune system by increasing the activity level of the body’s natural "killer T cells,” which fight off viruses.
Mental health and wellness. Research suggests that symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression (all associated with mental health) may be directly affected by massage therapy.
Pain management. Pain can negatively affect a person’s quality of life and impede recovery from illness or injury. Recent findings highlight the role of massage in pain management.
Improve physical fitness. Elite and recreational athletes alike can benefit from massage therapy—massage can reduce muscle tension, improve exercise performance and prevent injuries.
