How to do hormones affect sleep?
As we get older, our hormone levels such as melatonin and progesterone decline, causing a reduction in key hormones that are required for a deep and restful sleep. The trained naturopathic doctors at Health Momentum can prescribe the most appropriate and effective natural supplements for your sleep concerns.
How can Massage Therapy help Insomnia?
The neurotransmitters (chemicals in the brain) that promote sleep are very complex. The chemistry of sleep is relevant to massage therapists because massage directly influences the Healthy Body’s production of a neurotransmitter called serotonin and melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone released by the brain that directs circadian cycles to prepare for sleep.
