What happens to your body when you are in The Green Room? In the presence of the color green, your pituitary gland is stimulated. Your muscles are more relaxed, and your blood histamine levels increase, which leads to a decrease in allergy symptoms and dilated blood vessels, aiding in smoother muscle contractions and an easier time executing specialized exercises. Being in the presence of green is calming, stress- relieving, and invigorating all at the same time. At The Green Room PT, we strive to think of everything to aid in your recovery.
