Massage to Help Disconnect From Technology
Elements Massage Gilbert Jun 10, 2017
We know all too well the struggles of juggling modern technology with a health and wellness routine. From the latest Netflix binge to answering work emails in bed with a smartphone at all hours of the night, Skyping with distant family to chronically checking social media, we are living in an era where technology is a constant.
At Elements Massage Gilbert, we offer the antidote. Since technology can exacerbate stress due to it’s constant barrage, at our studio, we specialize in inducing a deep sense of calm and unlocking your capacity to relax, unwind, and take a break from the day-to-day grind.
Not to mention that disconnecting every once in awhile is a healthy step in achieving balance.
When it comes to massage, our talented team of massage therapists are knowledgeable in a wide variety of massage modalities that target different issues. Here are a few of the ways that massage can address issues that arise from being too connected to technology:
- Better Sleep
It’s been proven that the blue light of screens can affect circadian rhythms and result in sleep issues like insomnia. Swedish massage is a form of gentle massage that can help bring about a deep sense of peace to encourage better shuteye.
- Social media, although seemingly fun, can be addicting and instead of drawing people together has shown to make people feel more isolated and depressed. To get back in touch and nurture your mind and body, massage uses the power of touch to help reduce tension and anxiety while promoting a feeling of connectedness. To work on centering, hot stone massage offers a great way to release tension while taking comfort from smooth, heated basalt rocks that offer warmth.
- Brain Chemistry
All forms of massage can help reduce anxiety, tension, and stress. Since regular use of computers late at night is associated with interfering with hormones, massage is an excellent tool to rebalance both your physical and emotional well-being. Massage can help suppress the production of your stress hormone, cortisol, while boosting feel-good hormones like serotonin and dopamine.
We know it can be difficult to wean from technology. Start by booking a weekly session with our team taking a short break then reevaluate how you feel. Call our studio now!
