Stress is a silent killer. It affects your health much more than minor ailments. In today’s day and age, everyone is stressed. We are stressed due to work, a very fast life and even due to relationship problems. If this stress is not dealt with in time, it can cause serious health problems like high blood pressure and diabetes. It’s all about dopamine, a chemical naturally produced by the body that helps to keep the central nervous system and overall balance functioning smoothly. In short, dopamine helps us feel good. When high levels of stress are present this balance is disrupted, leading to feelings of depression and anxiety. The kneading and pressure on the muscles provided through massage therapy encourages the release of dopamine and thereby helps the body to manage stress better.
Get Your Chi Circulating Again
Let your “chi” flow: The ancient art of acupuncture teaches that a body’s natural energy (or chi) flows through a complex system of channels both within the body and across its surface. When that “stream” of energy is dammed up by pain of any kind, the chi can no longer flow properly and the imbalance this causes affects negatively the overall wellness.
A slow massage technique will have a calming, relaxing and soothing effect. Studies confirm that through relaxation massage endorphines are released in the central nervous system and these produce a state of wellbeing. Also this type of massage stimulates blood flow and this leads to a better elimination of toxins and a better oxygen flow to the tissues, which again has a relaxing and refreshing result.
Stress produces toxins and these impair the good functionality of systems and apparatus. The anti stress massage techniques used by us eliminate these toxins. This is extremely useful and beneficial against stress. The anti stress massage has a psychological effect, relaxing and refreshing the patient using it, it leads to a good physical and mental balance.
