Is your busy life causing stress-related symptoms like insomnia, increased chronic neck or jaw pain, headaches, back pain? Your body may be in a state of chronic stress response and if so, this can lead to conditions like diabetes or heart disease.
There are many steps you can take to change the direction of your health through good nutrition and exercise but first you must break the chronic stress cycle and retrain the “relaxation response”.
Massage can be a perfect first step solution. Massage not only feels good by reducing muscle tension and working out knots, it has many hidden benefits. Massage can help set-in-motion the “relaxation response” by producing the feel-good endorphin hormones and at the same time, reducing the production of the stress-related hormone cortisol, and lowering blood pressure.
Along with other healthful practices like exercise and good nutrition, massage can be the first step in improving your health by retraining your body to respond in a relaxation mode. It’s important to get massage on a regular basis to help you manage stress related symptoms, improve sleep patterns, and help you stay on track with the other steps you are taking to improve your health. Massage allows your body to heal and on a continued basis, serves as a preventative measure.
