Massage helps to combat insomnia by promoting the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter in the brain. It is believed that the area of the brain that facilitates the body entering into deep sleep uses serotonin to communicate. The brain also uses serotonin to produce melatonin. Massage promotes efficient thinking, but it can also improve memory.
Tight muscles can limit the circulation to the brain, which consequently does not support memory or concentration. Also, when massage relaxes tense muscles, it eases stress, which also benefits thinking and efficient, more productive work.
Positive emotions typically are related to better thinking and memory, whereas negative emotions are associated with pessimistic thinking and less concentration when left untreated.
