Massage Reduces Stress & Anxiety
For some of us, stress is a chronic problem that is built into our daily lives. It’s impossible to avoid all stress, but you can counteract its negative effects by evoking the relaxation response, a state of deep rest that is the opposite of the stress response. The stress response is helpful in true emergency situations where you must be alert by preparing your body for “fight or flight”. The end result is an increase in adrenaline, cortisol and other tension-related hormones and it wears your body down if constantly activated.
Relaxing with Massage
It is easy to say “just relax and deal with it”, but the reality for most people is that they are not really sure how to manage their anxiety.
Maintaining a regular massage session schedule will help you manage a healthy stress level.
Massage can activate the relaxation response, which brings your body back into balance. It increases endorphins and reduces the stress hormones in your body. This slows down your blood pressure and heart rate, deepens your breathing and relaxes your muscles.
