Stress Relief Techniques Should Involve Massage

Massage therapy is one of the most effective stress relief techniques because hands on bodywork has been shown to bring your heart rate, cortisol levels & blood pressure down.

That’s significant because stress affects your overall nervous system.

When your nervous system is thrown out of balance it’s vital that you engage in some sort of relaxation method to bring it back into balance.

While stress is beneficial in times of true physical danger it’s extremely damaging when it’s of the low level, constant variety.

This is the type of stress I see in many of my professional clients.

You’re under daily pressure to meet important deadlines, perform at a high level and also meet family obligations.

You’re often unaware of the stress you’re under. Your body keeps a consistent cortisol level that over time brings your body into “dis”-ease.

Dis-ease Symptoms Caused by Stress

  • Chest pain
  • Headaches
  • High blood pressure
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain
  • Stomach pain
  • Over-eating
  • Drug use
  • Alcohol use

Massage Helps Alleviate Stress Related Symptoms

One of the first results of any therapeutic bodywork massage session is a more relaxed state.

When your stress relief techniques involve massage you’re providing yourself a healing experience where your insulin levels, cortisol levels and heart rate are decreased back down into the “normal, healthy” range.

Homeostasis (this is the state of balance your body consistently tries to bring you back into) is restored when you go into deep relaxation and calm that results from a powerful massage session.

You feel “stress relief” when your session frees your muscles from their constricted state, allows circulation back into your organs & tissues and brings stabilization back to your breathing and heart rhythms.
