We all face stress on a daily basis. Stress can have a huge impact on both aspects of our well-being, and there is no lack of finding areas that cause stress in our normal daily lives; the workplace, relationships, financial stress, the list goes on. Massage therapy creates a sense of mental and physical relaxation and is an effective method of dealing with psychological issues such as depression, ADHD, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Massage relieves depression and anxiety. Almost everyone has felt depressed at one time or another to different degrees. The time you take to get a massage is time dedicated to yourself. Massage therapy affects depression by reducing stress and adding relaxation. This relaxation response can control and even prevent anxiety from occurring. Massage also causes the body to release the hormone oxytocin which is known to create bonding.
Please note: If you do suffer from depression or need help to talk to someone, massage is part of the arsenal in helping you but will never replace professional help and advice. Please ask for help.
Lowered Stress Levels. Prolonged stress and elevated cortisol levels can lead to a host of other problems. Massage has been proven to reduce cortisol levels by as much as 30 percent. Massage therapy activates neurotransmitters in your body, which can lower your stress hormones and decrease anxiety.
Massage Can Boost Your Energy. Living with any mental illness is draining and exhausting. It can feel impossible to even drag yourself out of bed in the morning, let alone work with a clear head. Massage aids blood flow, and so delivers oxygen to all the body's cells, which we need for energy.
