Does Massage really work?

Yes, massage really works! Treatments like the ones we offer in our Fulham Massage & Wellness clinic, performed by certified therapists, have been proven to be very effective in healing a variety of physical and emotional ailments. It is important to highlight that massage therapy works at its best when planned as a course of treatments: a single session can definitely provide some initial relief, but it is the regular series of appointments that will guarantee full recovery and overall well-being in the long term.


Let’s have a look at the main benefits that our clients have been experiencing over time, as a result of receiving a course of massages:

71. Stress Relief: Massage therapy helps reduce stress and ease the tension that has built up in the body. Research has shown that massage acts as a powerful circulation boost and increases levels of oxytocin, a hormone that contributes to the production of feelings of contentment and calm, while it decreases levels of cortisol, also called the “stress hormone”. 

2. Pain Relief: Massage therapy can help reduce pain by loosening muscles and releasing tightness in the tissues. 2 Treatments like Remedial massage or Sports massage, which are very popular in our Fulham clinic, can be especially beneficial for people with chronic pain or injuries. Massage can also help reduce migraine pain and related symptoms such as nausea and sickness. 

3. Improved Mobility: Massage therapy supports improving physical mobility by loosening tight muscles, improving posture, and increasing flexibility. This leads to a reduced risk of injuries and can improve athletic performance, as it promotes recovery between fitness sessions and prepares the body for the next workout. 4.png

4. Improved Sleep: clients who suffer from insomnia and poor sleep quality have confirmed that Massage therapy helps them sleep better, by significantly reducing stress and inducing relaxation. Scientific studies have shown that massage increases levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in regulating mood and sleep. 

5. Boosted Immunity: remember the circulation boost mentioned in point 1? This benefit of Massage therapy improves also the immune system by increasing the activity of lymphocytes, which are the white blood cells that play a role in fighting infections and illnesses. That’s one of the reasons why massage is so popular here in Fulham especially in the winter months when our defenses are lower and cold & flu symptoms are most frequent. Our clients have noticed that regular massage sessions help them stay healthy and promote their overall wellness.
