Release the Stress with Massage Therapy

1 week ago Monica Watson 0

Stress is just a normal reaction of the human body on some external influences, but most of the people feel that having a stress is not a normal thing and that they should get rid of that. But in order to feel good in your body, you must accept that fact that stress is a normal thing.

The only thing that we can do about stress is to lower it. How can we do that? Some people are using drugs and some of them are practicing sports. But there are some alternative ways that you could do, for example, massage therapies.

Here is some interesting article from WebMD site, about massage therapies and their impact on stress.

Massage Therapy for Stress Relief and Much More

Experts describe massage tips you can try on yourself to ease headaches, back pain, and to help you relax.

Few sensual experiences rival a full-body massage for pleasure and stress relief — at least among those things you can talk about in front of the children at the dinner table. Word on the health benefits of massage therapy for stress relief has spread. In 2006, 39 million Americans — one in six adults — had at least one massage, according to a nationwide survey by the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).

“Americans are looking to massage for much more than just relaxation,” says Mary Beth Braun, President of the AMTA. “Massage therapy can be effective for a variety of conditions, including arthritis, lower back pain, insomnia, headaches, anxiety, circulatory problems, and recovery from a sports injury.”

When you can’t get to a massage therapist, you can still reap many of the benefits of this age-old healing practice — with your own hands. WebMD consulted several massage experts to find these simple, self-massage techniques that incorporate the best soothing rubs and pressure-point applications that massage has to offer.

Try them on yourself — or someone you love — throughout the day to boost your energy and increase concentration. You can also use them at night to relax and get a good night’s sleep. You’ll find the benefits of massage therapy for stress relief are only the beginning. Read the full artcile here.

So, if you wonder how often you need to have these therapies, you should read the post below.

How Often Should You Get a Massage?

Plenty of information is available, on this website and elsewhere, about the benefits of Massage Therapy. When you receive regular massages, you feel better—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. The process loosens your muscles and your mind, opens your pores and your lymphatic system. Over time, you achieve a balance and holistic well-being that you may never have thought you could feel before you started.

But all of this begs the question: what constitutes “regular” massages? Do you go once a week, once a year, or something in between? As much as we would love to give a clear, specific answer, it depends on you and your needs. If you use massage therapy to complement frequent, vigorous athletic work, your massage routine can and should differ markedly from someone who receives massages for stress relief or general relaxation. To gain the greatest benefits of massage therapy, then, you need to begin by understanding yourself and your needs. Read the full artcile here.
