We offer registered massage therapy with proven results to those in and around Kingston, ON.
Just about every person in the world experiences stress, whether it comes from work, school, family, or other stressors. We all encounter situations in which we feel concern, anxiety, or fear about how to solve the problem, and this can a serious toll on our physical and emotional well-being. When we experience stress, we often tense up in our shoulders and back, leading to muscle soreness and stiffness that is hard to overcome. At Optimum Wellness, our focus is on each patient’s overall health, so learning to deal with stress is an important aspect of this overall well-being. Our massage therapist, Cristy Harper, offer physical stress relief through registered massage therapy techniques.
Registered massage therapy can improve blood circulation and relieve tight and sore muscles; however, chances are high that you will tense up again within a few days, once the massage is over and you start thinking about stressors once again. That’s why we also encourage our patients to learn about breathing and its impact on the body. When you experience stress, the natural reaction is for your heart rate to increase and your breathing to speed up. If you are aware of this reaction, you can consciously slow down and regulate your breathing, which allows the body to return to normal heart rate and lessen or even eliminate the stressful feeling.
