Often times, people think of human touch as a personally intimate topic. Human contact is important for the body and mind. Touch can create a connection between anyone.
For example, when you accidentally step on the back of someone’s shoe, you touch their arm as you apologize. It’s a small gesture that helps drive the sincerity of the apology.
Our office manager, Boo, recognizes the importance and impact human contact has on him. All our furry friends welcome this type of attention from their owners, and for good reason! The health benefits of physical touch range from emotional, mental, and physical. Oxytocin is released and inspires positive thinking and trust. It also increases dopamine and serotonin levels. These help regulate mood, stress, and anxiety. Touch can also boost your immune system and lower your blood pressure.
Massage therapy helps with all three types of health benefits. It reduces stress and anxiety, increases joint flexibility, and creates a sense of well-being, among other things.
So take a cue from our furry friends and schedule your massage today. Living Touch Massage offers a variety of services to fit each person’s needs. These can range anywhere from light & relaxing to deep & restorative, and other specialized services.
