Let’s Get That Weight Off Your Shoulders
You might feel like the world is against you, that everyone else has control over your life but you.
Work deadlines, family responsibilities, not to mention the pressure you put on yourself, all that stress add up and wreak havoc on your mind and body.
And stress never stops! You may think you can live with it, but your body spends every minute trying to balance out systems that are totally out of whack. You can get insomnia, heartburn, indigestion, constipation, and be more susceptible to illness.
Stress makes your heart work harder. Breathing becomes more rapid and shallow; digestion slows. In fact, nearly every body process is degraded because of it.
Unfortunately, you can’t turn off stress, but you can do something lessen it. Take control of your health by including massage as part of your self-care plan.
Massage is a stress therapy. That “limp as dishrag” feeling you get after a massage is the feeling of stress being released, repairing the damage that every day stress causes.
Massage has also been clinically proven to:
- Reduce cortisol, the stress hormone responsible for that tummy you can’t get rid of.
- Reduce blood pressure
- Increase circulation and oxygen, which improves mental clarity
The National Institute Of Health and the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry both published studies demonstrating the positive effects of massage on stress and anxiety.
