Stress is an unavoidable part of life. While there are times that a low level of stress can be good for you, most of us would rather live with a little less of it in our lives. Stress can come from many sources, and it isn’t always possible to completely remove some of them. What you can do is learn how to better cope with stress so that it doesn’t carry over into the other parts of your life – including your health.
Each person needs to find their own way to de-stress, so that the negative effects don’t begin to intrude upon their daily life. Massage is a great way to relax, unwind, and allow the stress to roll right off your shoulders. Here are just a few of the ways that a professional massage can kick stress to the curb and leave you feeling like an entirely new person.
Massage Is Relaxing
One of the worst parts about stress is that there never seems to be a break from it. Taking the time to pamper yourself with a massage can give you the escape you need to recharge your batteries. The entire massage experience is designed for relaxation and healing. As the tension is released from your body, your mind loosens its grip on the cause of your stress and allows you to focus on the more positive things in your life.
Massage Reduce Blood Pressure
Stress can cause your blood pressure to climb little by little, which only produces a physiological response that can make stress worse. High blood pressure can cause headaches, anxiety, and even more stress. There is both sufficient scientific and anecdotal evidence to suggest that regular massage therapy is an effective complementary treatment for reducing high blood pressure and the effects of hypertension.
Massage Reduces Muscle Tension
It’s near impossible to be stressed without feeling the tension build up in your muscles. Have you ever woke up with a stiff neck or sore shoulder, and were suddenly in a bad mood? Tense muscles can have a negative effect on our outlook and ability to handle the daily stress that’s thrown at us. Massage loosens tense muscles and relieves the pain that’s often associated with them.
Massage Can Boost the Immune System
Have you ever noticed that you seem to get sick at the most inopportune times? Stress seems to come along a cause havoc for the immune system. What follows is a vicious cycle of becoming more stressed because you’re sick – which only weakens the immune system more. Massage can boost your body’s production of natural killer cells, which are important to a healthy immune system. Massage can also help flush out toxins that can build up over time, making you healthier and better capable of handling the stress that comes your way.
