Relieve Stress with Relaxation Massage
Relaxation massage is great for alleviating everyday stress and providing an overall feeling of well-being. Stress is a causative factor in over 75% of illnesses reported in the US. Over time, your body builds up an unhealthy amount of stress hormones in response to traffic jams, work troubles, relationship problems and more. These unhealthy stress hormones can manifest into physical problems including digestive issues, sleep disorders, and chronic headaches.
Relaxation massage treats the body as a whole, boosting your immune system, flushing out toxins, and leaving you refreshed and ready for the day. Special techniques are employed during the relaxation massage to change your brain’s chemistry, resulting in reduced stress and improved overall mood.
Following this type of massage, you will feel not just relaxed, but completely rejuvenated. The feelings are triggered by the release of dopamine and serotonin during the massage. These hormones are responsible for the feeling of happiness and overall well-being. Studies show that during massage, activity in the right lobe of the brain, which is more active when people are depressed, is decreased, and activity in the left lobe is increased. The left lobe is most active when people are happy, and massage kicks that area of the brain into high gear.
