Stress and Therapeutic Massage
Stress is exhibited by many symptoms: anxiety, headaches, sleep disorders, digestive problems, loss of productivity, inability to concentrate, neck aches, changes in blood sugar, nervousness, irritability, increased blood pressure and breathing rate, heart palpitations, poor circulation, chronic fatigue and inhibition of the immune system.
Benefits of Therapeutic Massage
Therapeutic massage can help individuals become more aware of their daily stress level. It can also help them to recognize what true relaxation feels like so they can more easily recreate it for themselves before stress becomes chronic and damaging. Having this downtime from stress can enhance one’s ability to enjoy, cope with, and understand life, as well as increase one’s energy level and vitality. The stresses and strains of modern living have given therapeutic massage new recognition and acceptance as part of an overall beneficial plan for maintaining good health.
