Most of my friends are working in a corporate world. I decided to write a post about stress. Hope this gives them an idea Why Massage Is Good For Stressed People?
Most people compare the corporate world to a prison. Most people I know from the corporate world can’t handle the stress and pressure inside the corporate prison. They need to find a way to free themselves from the shackles of work. The key to this punishing work-related stress is a nice therapeutic massage. Massage works like magic especially to stressed people.
What is Stress?
Stress is the reaction of our body to changes in our environment. When our bodies adjust to physical, emotional and mental responses, that’s how we get stress. Stress is a part of our lives. We can get it easily. We can obtain it from physical activities or simply by being alone and thinking too much. Stress affects our health. Its effects vary from its levels. From a simple headache to suicidal thoughts, stress can cause them all. It’s impossible to remove stress completely. If we try to get rid of it, it will always come back to us. However, we can relieve it with a soothing massage.
How does massage therapy relieve stress?
Studies show that physical contact can relieve stress and lower depression. In my experience, a standard massage includes one hour of pure physical contact and a nice banter with an expert massage therapist. If that doesn’t relieve your stress, you’re probably a robot. In the vantage point of the science geeks, massage releases hormones called endorphin that soothe the peripheral nervous system. It can also significantly decrease the levels of stress hormones called cortisol. It also increases the flow of white blood cells which boosts the immune system to prevent stress-related aches. With regards to mental health, massage calms the mind to prevent stressful thoughts. In short, massage relaxes the body and the mind.
People say “laughter is the best medicine”. During the massage, you will share good laughs with the therapist. You’ll experience a fun vibe and your head will be filled with happy thoughts when in a massage session.
Other health benefits of massage
Massage doesn't only relieve stress. It also benefits our overall health. It improves the blood circulation. It also relieves muscular pain and lowers the blood pressure.
Massage is recommended for those who want to unwind. Honestly, as I’m writing this, I feel like getting a relaxing massage right now. I know you do too. So what are you waiting for? Go visit your nearest spa now.
