Everyone loves a good massage. Relaxing under the expert hands of a masseur can relieve tension and give those aching muscles much respite. But did you know massage can also help you relive stress?
We live in times where stress has invaded almost all aspects of our lives be it professional or personal. The need to continuously do better and in some cases just keep up, can leave even the most strong minded among us highly stressed out. In addition to feeling burdened under pressure to perform at the top of your capacity 24/7, stress is also a leading cause for a number of human ailments because as much as stress affects your mind, it also affects your body.
Stress Impacts both Mind and Body
Having to continuously deal with stress and not doing enough to counter its effects can lead to health damage that is irreversible in many ways. While stress definitely impacts your mind and emotional state, the effects of stress on your body are far reaching and more damaging. When your body is stressed out, your immune system weakens which in turn can lead to inflammation which then opens the doorway to other serious health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and osteoporosis.
So it is important that you keep your mind and body in good condition by exercising, eating right, and getting enough rest. However, in addition to these, if there is one more thing that can work in undoing the damage that stress causes, it is a good massage.
