I have asked some of my male clients why they get a massage. All of them said stress, pressure of life, and work. Stress can cause headaches, migraines, chronic muscular tension, and lowered immunity, as well as play a large role in the quality of sleep. Acute and long term stress can also lead to unhealthy coping behaviors such as over-eating and inactivity. Letís face it, stress is a normal and necessary function in life, and we are not getting away from it! However, how we manage our stress can make a big difference in how it shows up in our bodies and minds. Experts say a relaxing massage is an excellent stress elixir.
Massage is on of the best ways to relieve tension. The benefits of massage therapy are numerous, ranging from promoting relaxation to loosening tight muscles and increasing blood flow. It can help you manage stress by relieving anxiety and tension, promoting relaxation, increasing your energy, improving sleep, reducing muscle soreness, and decreasing pain.
Therapeutic massage, such as the Swedish method, is one of the most popular techniques in relieving stress. The Swedish technique, that are often referred to as a full body massage, involve gentle kneading pressure and long strokes applied to the surface to relieve tension in the muscles and connective tissues. Other techniques that can help relieve stress include deep-tissue massage to release tension from the deeper muscles and connective tissues, and trigger point therapy to release muscle spasms from specific areas.
