Stress Management & Massage Therapy

“Receiving a massage has many health benefits, but today we would like to focus on one health problem that has an effect on everyone. STRESS. Did you know that receiving just one massage can actually reduce your heart rate and your cortisol levels? A Field Study found that when moderate and light pressure massage have been compared in laboratory studies, moderate pressure massage reduced depression, anxiety and heart rate, and it altered EEG patterns, as in a relaxation response. Moderate pressure massage has also led to increased vagal activity and decreased cortisol levels. In return, reducing the stress in your body and mind can offer you a vast number of health benefits. From reducing anxiety, restlessness, and sleeping problems, to increasing joy, productivity and motivation, do your body a favor and schedule yourself a massage today!”
