The Exceptional Cruelty of a No-Hugging Policy

On some level, people know instinctively that caring touch makes them feel calmer. Much of TRI’s work over the past quarter century, though, has focused on what exactly happens in the body when humans are touched by other humans. According to Field, any activity that moves the skin stimulates the pressure receptors underneath it—which in turn increases the activity of the largest cranial nerve, the vagus nerve.

The vagus nerve has pathways to all major organs, Field says. “It slows down the heart. It goes to the GI tract and helps digestion. It helps our emotional expressions—our facial expressions and our vocal expressions. It enhances serotonin, the natural antidepressant in our system,” she says. “So that’s why hugging is good. That’s why massage is good.”

Plus, Field says, skin stimulation and the resulting vagal activity lowers levels of the stress hormone cortisol. High levels of cortisol are linked to a variety of health problems, such as anxiety, depression, cardiovascular disease, digestive problems, headaches, and sleep problems; additionally, elevated cortisol is known to harm the “natural killer cells” that help eliminate viral, bacterial, and cancer cells. In TRI studies, 10-week-old babies whose mothers massaged them regularly were found to get fewer colds and fewer bouts of diarrhea as they grew.

where can i find the best massage therapist in Tucson, AZ?

trial and error, or a recommendation from a friend are the only two ways that i know.

Massage therapy per hour?

If there is any Massage Therapists in Tucson that has been in the business a while please help! Can you work per hour anywhere or does it have to be per massage and where. I worked somewhere where it was per massage and I honestly like a set income.

I am not a therapist , I am just a massage therapy client. I would say that most massage therapists get paid per massage.
There is also another option and that is you rent a room at a massage therapy clinic.
