Why is massage important?
Chronic stress is the most destructive invisible health enemy there is today. Experts estimate that in today’s world more than 90% of diseases are stress related.
Dealing with deadlines and feeling continuously under duress makes your body react with the same old fighting scheme it developed millions of years ago.
In “Fight or Flight” reaction the body is flooded with the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline and your body is simply not designed to cope with the non-stop stress.
Constant high stress can create “hormonal poisoning“ in your body. This can have serious long-term effects on your overall health and well-being.
Signs that we are suffering from too much stress can be shown in many ways by our body. Increased muscular pain and tension, anxiety, sleep issues or low mood are just some of the signs and symptoms often associated with stress.
To achieve your highest potential in both your private and professional life, it is vital to address these signs of stress in your body early on.
Benefits of massage therapy
Just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn’t mean it is any less therapeutic and beneficial for your health and well-being.
In fact massage is one of the oldest healing arts and rather than being seen as a luxurious indulgence or treat, it is now seen as an essential part of self-care and maintaining your personal well-being.
The physical results massage can accomplish are easy to see. The emotional effects are just as equally important. Massage can have a profound effect on your emotional balance, which can make a huge difference to how happy, confident and relaxed you feel.
