Stress Relief Massage

With increasing pressures and demands in today’s world, stress has become a common factor in everyday life.

Our body tries to cushion the blow of these stresses to the maximum possible extent. But, when stress exceeds the limit, it is reflected through various pains in the muscles of the neck or back, tension headaches or anxiety.

You can’t avoid all stress, but you can counteract its negative effects by learning how to evoke the relaxation response, a state of deep rest that is the polar opposite of the stress response.

The stress response floods your body with chemicals that prepare you for “fight or flight.” But while the stress response is helpful in true emergency situations where you must be alert, it wears your body down when constantly activated.

The Stress Relief Massage can activate the relaxation response and bring your system back into balance: deepening your breathing, reducing stress hormones, slowing down your heart rate and blood pressure, and relaxing your muscles.

Stress relief massage utilizes strokes that can calm nerves and relax muscles. It is often used together with aromatherapy to provide a person with maximum therapeutic benefits.

In addition to its calming physical effects, research shows that the relaxation response also increases energy and focus, combats illness, relieves aches and pains, heightens problem-solving abilities, and boosts motivation and productivity.

The Stress Relief Massage provides deep relaxation, and as the muscles in your body relax, so does your overstressed mind.
