Stress. Just hearing the word can conjur up images of the things you have to do or those things that you’ve been worried about. Where stress, in small doses, can help propel us to reach goals and do what is required of us, it can also be detrimental to our physical self. As a normal part of modern life, stress causes the body and mind to react in both negative and positive ways. Long-term or extreme challenges to our mental or physical state can actually create disease within the body. In fact, more than 75% of all doctor visits are contributed to ailments created, or exacerbated by, high levels of stress. Relieving that stress, therefore, is extremely important to our health. Massage therapy has been a proven stress reliever and a method for healing for close to 4,000 years.
Because of the body’s stress response, the body’s muscles to tense up during times of stress. If the cause of the stress is temporary, the tensed muscles easily and quickly relax. However, if a person is under a constant state of stress, muscles throughout the body may remain in that tension-filled state. The techniques employed during a massage therapy session help to soothe and relax various muscles, alleviating pain and diminishing symptoms of stress.
