Anxiety and stress can cause us to be in a constant state of adrenaline overload – depleting the adrenals and overloading the nervous system causing fatigue, brain fog and sleeping difficulties.
Massage is perhaps one of the oldest healing traditions. Many cultures – including the Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Chinese and Indians – were convinced of the therapeutic properties of massage and used it to treat a variety of ailments.
One of the immediate benefits of relaxation massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins, the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine, are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
Some of the physical benefits of massage include:
reduced muscle tension
stimulation of the lymphatic system
improved immune function
reduction of stress hormones
improved sleep quality
heightened mental alertness
reduced anxiety and depression.
