We all know that classic massage is a great way to relieve tension and stress and promote relaxation. But the new study, which was published in the journal Alternative and complementary medicine 'showed for the first time that massage also provides measurable therapeutic effects on the immune system and other systems and organs. This study opens new horizons for the development of classical massage and bezmedikamentoznoy therapy. In addition, it has been pointed out that massage, in general, and classical in particular is one of the safest therapies in general. Dr. NBA spoke with conviction.
Mark Rapaport and his team Researchers from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, studied 53 people, 29 of whom received a 45-minute classic massage – one of the most common form of massage – and 24 who received a soft and short massage. The researchers took blood samples at intervals before and after massage and found that those who received at least one session of classical massage there have been significant positive changes in the blood. 'This research shows that massage not only makes a person feel good, it can also be really good for your health ', says Dr. Rapaport in a press release. "People are often looking for massage as part of a healthy lifestyle, but there was still sufficient physiological evidence of increasing immune response until now. " In addition, after the classic massage showed a significant increase in lymphocytes, white cells in the body that help fight and prevent disease, as these people have reduced levels of cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that is released in the adrenal glands in response to stress. Also in the group, which made a classic massage and decreased vasopressin (hormone indirectly related to aggressive behavior).
