“A study conducted by the National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, and published in The New York Times, found that volunteers who received a 45-minute Swedish massage experience significant decreases in levels of the stress hormone cortisol, as well as arginine vasopressin; a hormone that can lead to increases in cortisol. Volunteers also had increases in the number of lymphocytes; white blood cells that are part of the immune system, and a boost in the immune cells that may help fight colds and the flu.”
