Massage for Insomnia

Insomnia is a serious problem in America today. Many who seek treatment for insomnia are immediately prescribed some type of medication that comes with a host of problems, side effects, risk of dependence, and increased tolerance.

Many people have an idea about the benefits of massage: stress reduction, improved circulation, lower heart rate/blood pressure, it even boosts immune system. Many people have also experienced what a great sleep aid massage can be. Not only does massage bring on a deep state of relaxation, but it treats many of the causes of insomnia, including migraines, pain, and muscle & joint stiffness. And-Did you know regular massage has been scientifically proven to effectively treat insomnia (significant trouble either falling or staying asleep) by changing the neuro-chemistry in the brain? Why? Insomnia is associated with a lack of serotonin. Massage increases serotonin levels which is needed for our bodies to produce melatonin which influences the sleep stage of our circadian rhythm.

So, if you’re looking for a healthy, non-addictive, side effect-free way to improve both the quality & quantity of your sleep massage may be one of your best options! View our Massage Offerings Here.
