Massage Reduces Stress
The Holidays should be happy and exciting, not stressful. Of course a house full of people and the empty shelf at the toy store can be unnerving but you do not have to let it impact this time of year negatively.
Some effects stress can have on the body include headaches, upset stomach, trouble sleeping, anxiety, muscle tension, fatigue, irritability or anger, and sadness or depression. Negative ongoing stress can put your body and health at risk.
Massage reduces stress physically and mentally. Stress causes muscles to be tense decreasing oxygen and nutrients to the body. Massage loosens these tense muscles and increasing circulation allowing nutrients and oxygen to get to all areas leaving the body with a sense of well being.
Massage also increases levels of serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin which leave the body to feel calmer, relaxed and content.
Stay Happy and Healthy this Holiday Season!
Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths
