As our lives get busier and we take on more responsibility, our stress levels begin to rise.

 

Stress affects people in many ways. It is an issue that needs to be addressed before our body becomes affected by it and begins to become ‘rundown and sick’.

 

One of the easiest ways to reduce our stress is to relax! Massage has been proven over the years to be a beneficial and alternative way to relax the mind and body. Massage stimulates the brain to release endorphins into our blood stream which makes us feel calm, relaxed, happy – giving us a sense of wellbeing. Adrenalin, cortisol, and norepinephrine; are stress hormones, studies have shown that these hormones impair the immune system.  Massage helps to decrease the release of these hormones. 

 

Massage reduces muscle tension, anxiety/ stress, depression, improves blood circulation, joint mobility and flexibility, skin tone and mental awareness, and has many other benefits.

 

It is so important to take time out of your busy schedules and relax, to allow your mind and body some time to recover.

 

Be kind to your body by booking a regular massage with one of our experienced massage therapists.
