Stress Therapies

Massage Helps You Manage Stress

Stress leads to over-working of muscles and weakens the body resulting in stiffness, soreness or even muscle spasms. Stress leads to the accumulation of lactic acid and waste air inside the body which exhausts the body and de-motivates the mind to remain active. Massage helps in getting the mind back to a balanced and relaxed state.

Generally, areas of tension in a patient's body are located by using hands, forearms, elbows, or even feet. Pressure in the form of rubbing, pinching, kneading and tapping is exerted on these areas. This affects the soft tissues of the body and increases blood flow and healing, which, in turn, relaxes you.

Why massage?

A) Massage improves the performance of the lungs.

B) It boosts the circulatory and immune systems and benefits blood pressure, circulation, muscle tone, digestion, and skin tone.

C) It improves circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids.

D) It increases oxygen flow, which eliminates waste products from inside the body, and enhances recovery from diseases.

E) It leads to improvement of muscles, nerves, spinal cord and brain.

There are no side effects of massage. You don't even need a specific prescription for it. All you need to do is just go for it.
