There are several that are released during massage and they can all be considered under the umbrella term as 'feel good' hormones. At the same time the 'not-so-good-for-you' are reduced. The hormones that are released during a professional licensed massage therapist include; dopamine which makes you feel good and improves normal brain functioning). seratonin ( a general mood enhancing hormone), and oxytoxin (a general feel good hormone nicknamed the 'hugging hormone). The ones that are decreased are the ones associated with short-term and long-stress and include; epinephrine, norepinephrine, and cortisol. All of these tend to lower the immune system and disrupt digestion and tissue repair.
