massage therapy can reduce stress

Massage therapy is one of the oldest forms of healing, with deep roots embedded across cultures. From Pharaohs to everyday office workers alike, massage therapy can act as a soothing agent for your body and mind. One of the benefits for those who receives this type of therapy is that it helps rehabilitate injuries – not just physically but mentally too. Keep reading to find out how beneficial this modality is, when done properly.

How Does Massage Therapy Reduce Stress?
Stress is the body’s natural response to external and internal stimuli such as work, health, or certain hobbies. Anxiety manifests physically and mentally for everyone, which is why Massage Therapy is highly effective at treating both. When undergoing advanced massage therapy by a skilled licensed massage therapist, these treatments increase your body’s heat, and encourages better blood circulation to help remove waste products from the body. This process stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system which regulates your fight/flight response, so you start to feel calmer in general – lessening everyday stresses with each visit!

Massage therapy is a professional therapeutic treatment, designed to relax and restore the body’s balance through the manipulation of your soft tissues and muscles. There’re over 250 types of modalities for varying purposes – such as relaxation, sports recovery, or chronic pain relief. The advantage of visiting an experienced licensed massage therapist comes from their understanding of how the body reacts to stress and pressure, which in turn, gives you more clarity of how your body can better cope with these triggers; therefore, hastening your healing and recovery. In this way, massage therapy can be an effective treatment to help decrease stress in your day-to-day life.

Deep Tissue Massage is a great option to help release built up tensions in the deeper layer of muscles. A lack of activity, such as sitting in one spot throughout the day, can be a contributing factor for stress caused by those tight spots held in your neck, shoulders, and upper back. These sedentary restrictions if not dealt with, can lead to chronic tension and severe pain. In that case, EM (EM Wellness Massage) is a skilled deep tissue specialist who goes above and beyond to ensure you feel renewed, and refreshed, ready to face whatever comes next.
