How Massage Can Help


Massage can help induce deep relaxation, helping to remove the built up tension of stress response, without damaging the body. And no, it doesn’t have any side effects! So, problems seem less daunting when the body is relaxed, which will prevent tension building up.

Or you could just go to counselling and pay to be even more stressed by speaking about your stress? (Client’s statement)

 

 How does massage treat stress and its effects?

  • Releases endorphins, the pain relieving happy hormones

  • Boosts the immune system, weakened by constant stress, stimulates the circulation and the lymphatic system

  • Increases energy level and induces calm in both mind and body

  • Stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which slows the body down, lowers heart rate and switches digestion back on

  • Relaxes all the systems, which either shut down or speed up when stressed. That helps with insomnia, backache, headaches and other stress related conditions.

  • Stimulates the body’s natural ability to repair and renew at cellular level.

  • Helps treat depression and symptoms such as low self-esteem by boosting well-being, which in turn increases self-worth.

There are several treatments available to ease the stress and stress related conditions, different people like different treatments. Some examples of massages and their effects on the body are listed below. But please feel free to click on the name for full description of the treatment.

 

Indian Head Massage – very effective as it’s treating areas of the body most affected by stress: neck, head, shoulders, upper back and arms. Fully dressed or undressed with use of oil.

Hopi Ear Candling (incl. face massage) - it clears the head, sinuses, headaches, migraines, improves hearing. The crackling sound of the burning candle is also relaxing.
