Massage is Good for Your Brain!

Everybody knows that massage is good for your body. However, did you also know that a good massage has a lot of positive effects on your brain? Indeed, when you come in for treatment at Nu Star Chiropractic in Edmonds, you’re boosting your brain power just as much as you’re easing your stress and sore muscles.

Research conducted by the Touch Research Institute shows us that even a simple, fifteen-minute chair massage can bring about a noticeable increase in your alertness and attention. Trial subjects experienced a sensation that they compared to a “runner’s high”. These effects are evidently caused by stimulation in the massage subject’s brain wave activity, which similarly contributes to restful sleep.
