Everyone experiences stress. When stress is experienced daily however, health can be at risk. Stress causes chemicals such as adrenaline and cortisol to be released, enabling the body to activate the sympathetic response otherwise known as the 'fight or flight' response. The sympathetic response is important during survival situations such as avoiding a car accident. Having the production of adrenaline and cortisol on a regular basis is toxic for the body and can cause symptoms such as fatigue, irritability, clouded judgments, and reduction of efficiency. Constant stress can also lead to addictive habits such as over-eating/under-eating, drug/alcohol abuse, or smoking.
Virtually every symptom listed by the American Psychological Association can benefit from Therapeutic Massage Therapy. Research has shown that Therapeutic Massage Therapy can lower your heart rate and blood pressure, relax your muscles and increase the production of endorphins, your body's natural "feel good" chemical. Serotonin and dopamine are also released through Therapeutic Massage Therapy, and the result is a feeling of calm relaxation that makes chronic or habitual as well as acute or short-term stress much easier to overcome.
In fact, stress relief is one of the first benefits that come to mind when thinking of Therapeutic Massage Therapy. It's also a key component for anyone trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle. Clinical studies show that even a single 1 ½-hour session can significantly lower your heart rate, cortisol levels and insulin levels -- all of which explain why Therapeutic Massage Therapy and stress relief go hand-in-hand.
