Stress is a natural part of our everyday lives. If we do not manage it properly, it can accumulate to unhealthy levels. Stress is the cause of many diseases and is a factor in many others. It may be emotional or mental in origin, or it may have a physical cause, i.e.: poor posture, injuries, improper exercise, or job functions. No matter the origin, it is expressed in our physical bodies. Stress may bring headaches, anxiety, aching muscles, digestive problems, depression, insomnia, as well as more serious disorders. We can use massage to relieve these damaging effects.
Massage is “drugless therapy,” a natural way to reduce pain and stress and enhance wellness. Massage strengthens the circulatory, immune, digestive and other body systems. To enhance a sports program, massage increases flexibility and performance and reduces the risk of injury. Last but not least, through the loving touch of massage, we can show our caring concern for one another.
