The more stress you have in your life, the more likely it is that you will suffer from things like high blood pressure, high blood sugar, a compromised immune system, anxiety attacks, panic attacks and heart problems—to name a few. Since this is the case, the question then becomes, “How can I alleviate stress in order to have a happier, more fulfilling life?” While there are many different options around for stress relief, if you are seeking for a way to naturally reduce your stress levels, consider the option of massage therapy.
Massage therapy has been around for centuries. In fact, it is believed that the first mention of massage therapy was over 5,000 years ago. Massage therapy is excellent for relieving pain, as well as for providing you with a sense of peace and contentment. Many health issues can be successfully treated through the use of massage therapy, including headaches, pain during pregnancy, arthritis and TMJ. Massage therapy serves to effectively reduce your stress through reducing blood pressure and cortisol production. It also allows your body to more effectively use the oxygen you breathe in.
