Most people have sometimes felt quite low at some point in their life – there’s nothing unusual about it. But if the feelings of sadness, hopelessness and despair persist for a longer time, then you may be dealing with a chronic depression. Of course, a single body to body massage may not do the trick right away, but it can offer at least a temporary relief – which is no less potent than your standard prescription drugs, if not more so! How? Let’s find out!
Your body to body massage can simulate the production of natural antidepressants
The experience of a sexual massage triggers the release of many chemicals which naturally occur in the body. These are:
A fabled “pleasure drug”, this hormone causes the feeling of pleasure and mood improvement – and the lack of it has the opposite effect. Large quantities of dopamine are released in the course of an orgasm where they switch on the centres responsible for feelings of pleasure. When your dopamine levels are low, you’re more prone to mood swings and feelings of fatigue, which contribute to depression. Increasing the dopamine levels again can reverse this and make you feel happier again!
While dopamine is known as a “pleasure drug”, oxytocin has earned for itself the nickname “love drug”. Indeed, it can facilitate the feelings of being loved, feelings of connection with others, reduce anxiety and contribute to an overall sense of happiness. Besides that, it also has a blood pressure-lowering effect.
This chemical is regularly found in most antidepressants – but an erotic massage can stimulate its natural production! And a “natural high” is always preferable to a chemically induced one!
You can also add endorphins to the cocktail of feel-good natural chemicals that your massage can unlock. These hormones are similar to opioids in their effect of reducing both physical and mental pain, they can also induce feelings of happiness and leave you more energised.
Another hormone which can act as a mood stabiliser. Together with all the aforementioned chemicals it completes the rich tapestry of feel-good substances, adding a calming and soothing effects to the mix. I also significantly improves sleep quality.
And the benefits of your rubdown don’t have to end there…
The chemical aspect is just a part of an overall healing power of body to body massages. They can be also very beneficial from a psychological standpoint, and can directly address a number of issues that tend to contribute to the depression. A lot of psychological problems keep stemming from the human experience of sexuality. A traumatic sexual experience at a young age, lack of intimacy and sexual contact, low self-esteem, skewed self-perception or distorted body image and many other erotic-related factors can exacerbate the feelings of depression. A body to body erotic massage goes straight to the root of many of these problems and offers a loving, non-judgemental treatment by an attractive therapist that caters to your sensual needs without placing any demands on you. The result may be a greatly boosted self-esteem and a resolution to many of the issues that troubled you!
Healthy body contributes to a healthy mind
There are other benefits to a body to body treatment that deserve a mention. The overall muscle relaxation, the increased blood flow and toxin disposal, the lowering of blood pressure – all contributing to your general health of your body. And when you feel better in your own skin, you’ll feel better in your own mind as well!
These were the ways in which a body to body massage can contribute to alleviating depression. Nevertheless, you should try multiple methods if you truly suffer from it – and don’t give up!
