Massage for sleep.

Sleep is absolutely paramount to keeping our immune system healthy. Those of us struggling to sleep and only getting a few hours a night have more cortisol (stress hormone) in our bodies, than those who sleep blissfully for seven hours or more.

Raised cortisol levels (I’ve spoken about this before) lead to many health problems, including -

- Trouble sleeping 

- Hunger

- Weight gain

- Increased abdominal fat

- Depression 

- Headaches

- Heart disease.

Massage has been proven to bring the level of the cortisol hormone down.

Serotonin, our happy hormone, which influences our -

- Sleep 

- Wellbeing

- Appetite

- Memory

- Sex drive

- Mood.

Studies show that massage can help boost serotonin levels by up to 28% 

The production of serotonin is essential for the production of melatonin (sleep hormone)

Aromatherapy massage will add an extra boost to promoting sleep, as the essential oils can be specifically selected to aid a better nights sleep.  

Massages start from just £15.

Massage is not a luxury It should be part of your health regime
