Massage To Relieve Stress
Overworked & Overwhelmed? Get a Massage
If you’re like most Americans, you probably feel over-worked, over-planned, and overwhelmed. With full-time jobs, families, children, and various engagements to keep up on, life can sometimes be a daunting adventure. But new studies say that massage therapy can be beneficial for a variety of conditions—but primarily stress-relief is the one area where massage really makes a difference.
A 2012 study published in Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice suggests that massage for people working long hours can reduce stress and the symptoms related to stress, including fatigue, insomnia, headaches, and shoulder tension. Massage can also help reduce anxiety, stress, and pain. So while you’re formulating your self-care plan, be sure to incorporate regular massage into your practice.
