It’s perfectly fine to have an emotional release..

Massage therapy benefits provides a soothing and comforting alternative to verbal therapeutic techniques, such as counseling.

A phenomenon called emotional release sometimes happens during a massage session. Unexpressed emotions that are held in the body may come to the surface when receiving massage therapy.

How this happens is much the same as reaching out to a friend who is hurting and you touch their hand or shoulder. A tear might come quite involuntarily. It just happens… and needs to be released. The right circumstance and the right person will elicit a release at anytime in our lives.

Our bodies store our experiences. Sometime a sore shoulder is much more than a tight muscle.

Certain forms of massage therapy specifically address the emotions and therapists are trained to deal with issues brought up during the massage session.

Touch helps fulfill the need for human contact and nurturing that we received from birth. For some people this is the only caring contact that they may ever feel. This is why I refer to massage as being similar to an hour long hug.

Fighting common health issues with a massage.

By lessening the tension in your muscles, massage therapy can help you overcome a number of stress-related health issues, including insomnia, fatigue, and lack of focus. Massage also reduces stiffness in your muscles and joints, which could help boost your flexibility and mobility (both essential to healthy aging).

What’s more, research shows that massage can decrease stress hormones while increasing levels of feel-good brain chemicals like serotonin and dopamine, which could explain the therapy’s positive effects on people with depression and chronic fatigue syndrome.
