What are “Endorphins”?

 

The word “endorphin” comes from the two words “endogenous” and “morphine”. Endorphins are small protein molecules that are produced by cells in your nervous system and other parts of your body.

Endorphins have been shown to:

  • Control persistent pain.
  • Control the craving for chocolate and addictive substances.
  • Regulate the production of growth and sex hormones.
  • Reduce symptoms associated with eating disorders.

Although more research needs to be done, endorphins are believed to produce four key effects on the body and mind:

  • They enhance the immune system.
  • They relieve pain.
  • They reduce stress.
  • They help postpone the aging process.

Several popular healing modalities have been found to stimulate the body’s natural production of endorphins. Endorphins help kill pain. These include:

  • Massage
  • Acupuncture
  • Chiropractic

What makes Massage Experts unique is that all three modalities are offered. Therefore providing you the best of all three.
