In today’s newsletter we’ve got new updates for you on our current promotions and we have one remedial therapist Daphne joined our team this week.
We’re also sharing information that has been found on how massage therapy has been shown to help immensely to reduce stress, pain and anxiety. Read more about it in the article by James Lake found on psychologytoday.com.
How Massage Reduces Stress and Anxiety
The anxiety-reducing and mood enhancing benefits of massage are probably related to changes in EEG activity, decreased levels of cortisol and increased activity of the parasympathetic nervous system, which acts automatically to calm the body and brain during stress.
Numerous studies show that moderate pressure massage is more effective than light pressure massage for reducing pain associated with different medical problems including fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. Moderate pressure massage also improves attention and enhances the body’s immune response by increasing the activity of natural killer cells. Functional brain imaging studies show that changes take place in many areas of the brain involved in regulating emotions and stress response including the amygdala and the hypothalamus.
Regular massage therapy reduces the severity of chronic moderate anxiety in general, and specifically when anxiety is related to test-taking or problem-solving, work stress or the anticipation of invasive medical procedures.
