Skin Touch Therapy
How does the skin benefit from Skin Touch Therapy (Neuromuscular Therapy)?
Our endocrine system is a "hormone regulating factory". Touch affects your nerves and muscles which then affects your skin. Our skin interacts with the nervous system and endocrine system, and our face is the house of the brain.
This master center of information divides into the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight), the parasympathetic nervous system (relaxed state) and the motor nervous system (motor skills responding to stimuli).
There are 12 cranial nerves originating directly from the brain that innervate our head and face. The face interprets brain signals through sight, smell, touch, and movement providing feedback to the brain. New information is processed and acts as a commander giving orders to our organs and glands instructing them to act in a certain way. By the secretion of certain hormones our body responds resulting in a parasympathetic state or sympathetic state.
The intention of neuromuscular therapy is to induce the parasympathetic nervous system to take over, allowing it to communicate with your pituitary, pineal and hypothalamus glands. These glands produce human growth hormones and melatonin- a powerful antioxidant. The result is one of homeostasis to the mind, body and soul.
Skin touch therapy is a natural way to reduce stress, signs of ageing, skin sagging, wrinkles through skin rejuvenation!
