There is nothing more relaxing than having a skilled massage therapist, work out the tension from an overly taunt neck and shoulder muscles.
But how is a massage an important component to mental health?
Massage can increase circulation by manually applying pressure and movement. It stimulates nerve receptors causing the blood vessels to dilate.
It increases oxygen capacity and loosens muscles.

When the mind is allowed to relax, it is better able to focus when we need it after the message.
