It’s a no-brainer that the holidays are stressful. It can be very easy to be swallowed up by it and forget to take care of yourself. But now more than ever it’s important to pencil in some self-care. Massage therapy can have a powerful impact on those suffering from stress, depression, and anxiety this holiday season.
Massage has been shown to:
- Lower oxygen consumption, blood pressure, and salivary cortisol levels
- Decrease heart rate, systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure
- Reduce trait anxiety with a course of treatment providing benefits similar to psychotherapy
- Reduce depression in those with high blood pressure
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, try booking a massage to help bring you back to center.
