There are numerous causes of stress that are present in our lives on a daily basis. When we become stressed our body reacts in various ways.
The top six symptoms of stress are:
- Lack of Interest
- Feeling Overwhelmed
A great way to relax and combat these symptoms is through a relaxation massage! (you can find other methods here!)
A relaxation massage is one of the most naturally beneficial experiences that life offers. It helps reverse the body’s physical reaction to stress and strain, calms the mind and helps satisfy the human need to be touched in a caring, nurturing fashion. Massage techniques are designed to reeducate your body to relax, unwind, rest and assume to its proper state.
Massage therapists are trained to “listen” to your body. Meaning, they use their hands to feel where the tension is located and through various techniques reduce that tension. Most people put their stress in their neck or upper back and that explains why there is so much tension and tightness in that area when we become stressed.
Relaxation massages are good for people of all ages! If you have a teenager who is stressed with school work, sports, or just everyday life, a relaxation massage can help them combat stress.
