How Massage Lowers Stress
When your body experiences stress, your brain sends a signal to ramp your body up for confrontation. These signals increase your heart rate, cause your blood pressure to rise, your muscles to tighten, and your breath to become shallower. This ‘stressed’ state is difficult to sustain and can leave you feeling completely worn out.
When you receive a massage, the application of pressure and movement help your body release the tension stored up from perceived threats and enables your body to relax. In this relaxed state, your body better circulates blood, lymph, and oxygen while removing toxins from your bloodstream to help you feel your best. Not to mention, an unstressed system is key to an optimum functioning immune system.
Additional benefits include better quality sleep, less bodily aches and pains and a calmer, more centered you to take on each day. If you are feeling stressed, give us a call and book your next session today. We bet you’ll be glad you did!
