Massage Therapy – What is Stress

What is stress and how can our massage therapy services help? Stress is a mental, emotional or physical condition occurring in response to adverse internal influences and capable of affecting physical health—usually characterized by increased heart rate, a rise in blood pressure, muscular tension, irritability and depression.

The advantages of massage therapy

The advantages of massage therapy have been proven by many studies conducted over the years. Studies show that even one massage session can reduce stress, anxiety, blood pressure, headaches and high heart rate among many other factors. Additional advantages from a number of experiments which were made in 2008 in the massage therapy field clearly indicated that massage can significantly ease back pain.

American Society and the American College of physiotherapists recommend that chiropractors and physiotherapists use massage treatments (as well as progressive relaxation, yoga, acupuncture and chiropractic) when patients with chronic low back pain do not respond to conventional treatment.

Some of the biggest advantages exposed by numerous studies in massage therapy are listed below:

  • Massage therapy relieves stress
