Massage Therapy & Your Immune System

Posted on November 18, 2020

People who experience high levels of stress tend to get sick more than others. Combine stress with lack of sleep and poor nutrition, and our immune system’s ability to naturally protect itself against bacteria and infection is greatly reduced.

So, what are the benefits of massage on immune system?

Clinical studies have indicated that regular massage not only helps alleviate stress, but can naturally increase the immune system’s cytotoxic capacity (the activity level of the body’s natural “killer cells”) and decrease the number of T-cells, which improves the body’s immune functioning overall. Massage therapy is also a great addition to your exercise program. Just like regular exercise can keep your muscles strong, regular massage can help keep your immune system performing at its peak.

Benefits of Strengthening the Immune System

  • Increases the body’s natural killer cells
  • Aids in the fight against bacteria and infection
  • Naturally enhances the body’s ability to get nourishment to importan areas
