Massage benefits of stress relief over the Christmas period
Christmas brings a lot of joy to all but it can also be a stressful time. Gift shopping, visitors and working long hours for extra Christmas money can place a lot of strain on your body. This stress can lead to muscular ache especially in the neck, shoulders and lower back, can cause tension headaches and increased tiredness. Stress over a long period of time can also lead to chronic fatigue, digestive problems, high blood pressure and increase your risk of stroke and heart attack.
It is important to take some time out for you to unwind and relax. A remedial massage can be the perfect form of stress relief. It is a treatment where a therapist manipulates the body’s muscles and soft tissue to relieve pain and decrease stress.
The benefits of massage for stress relief include:
- Muscle relaxation
- Improved circulation
- Tension head ache relief
- Easing muscular pain
- Relaxation of the mind
- Improved sleep quality
