The relationship of stress and illness is of interest to anyone maintaining their health. We all have stress in our daily lives relating to work, family, environment, and society. Stress causes the release of hormones that create vasoconstriction — vessel shrinking — and reduced circulation. Affected by stress, the heart works harder, breathing becomes rapid and shallow, and digestion slows. Nearly every body process is degraded. Users of massage therapy as a healing tool quickly realize that they have found a form of drugless therapy. Headaches, back and neck pain, digestive disorders, arthritis, wrist and elbow pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica and minor aches are some of the problems that can respond to massage therapy. Massage can have an excellent effect on nervous, stressed out people who have been dependent on their pharmacy for rest and relaxation.

When the body is under significant stress a number of effects are occurring. During the event of stress in body the flow of circulation is reduced blocking needed oxygen to the blood. Massage reverses this effect, increasing the flow of lymphatic fluid, improving circulation and blood flow, and the distribution of nutrients and oxygen.

Each day our body collects toxins from the environment, excess hormones in our body, poor nutrition, and other sources. These waste products such as lactic acid & carbonic acid build up within the body. A good stress relief massage naturally helps your body release these toxins along with many other toxins. This results in the detoxifying your muscles and the entirety of your body.

Stress has an effect on our muscles.

Stress relief massage leaves you feeling refreshed and not so tired from the amount of pain you were experiencing.
