Benefits of Back Massage
Back massage feels good because the nerves run through the spine. A good back massage can help relieve both upper and lower back pain. Relieve muscle-tension and treat neck and shoulder pain. An upper back massage may help relieve the tension in that area and reduce the pain from migraines. It stimulates the production of endorphins, dopamine and serotonin, chemicals that make the body feel good. Athletes who have strained muscles in the lower, middle and upper back may notice increased joint flexibility after a back massage. It helps bring blood with oxygen and nutrients to the muscles and major organs.
