Alleviating Stress with Massage Therapy

Modern lifestyles and finding the right work/life balance that suits employers, clients, families and friends can often lead to stress in many people. 

Stress can create a variety of uncomfortable and unpleasant conditions and disorders in the body, which can have a negative effect on one’s productivity and the wellbeing of an individual.  In severe cases, if left untreated this can result in disease.  

Many of the symptoms of stress can be treated with soft tissue massage and mobilisation of the bodies tissues including release of tension and pain in the body’s musculature structure, back aches, insomnia, tension headaches, panic attacks etc.

How Massage Therapy Alleviates Symptoms of Stress on the Body

massage therapyWe believe in the body's innate ability to heal itself. However, with the workload we often give it, some level of intervention is occasionally required to assist our bodies and minds in making an energetic shift towards a state of balance and, ultimately, self-healing.

Stress can help to slow the function of the lymphatic system allowing toxins to accumulate and be stored in the body for longer than is necessary. Massage helps to improve blood flow to the body’s organs and muscles resulting in improved circulation and immune and nervous system functionality.

Massage involves acting on and manipulating the body with pressure both structured and unstructured by way of the therapists hands targeting tissues including muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, joints and other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels and organs of the gastrointestinal system.
