Massage TherapyDo you feel stressed out? 

You’re not alone – there are plenty of reasons to feel tense these days!

Thankfully, your Taylorsville chiropractic team can provide you with immense stress relief through therapeutic massage. 

Whether you’re stressed out because of work, homeschooling your kids, or what’s going on in the world today, massage therapy will allow your body to relax and heal. 

Massage Therapy – An Important Key to Stress Relief

Stress can wreak havoc on your body and health. During a stressful moment, your body releases hormones and chemicals that allow you to get out of danger fast. In this fast-paced world, it’s easy for our bodies to get into and stay in fight-or-flight mode. 

Chronic stress can lead to: 

  • Lowered immune response
  • Sore muscles
  • Chronic headaches or migraines
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Heart disease
  • Depression, anxiety, and panic disorders
  • Gastrointestinal issues
  • Endocrine disruption/dysfunction 

How Massage Therapy Helps Reduce Stress

When you’re stressed out, your heart rate seems like it’s going a mile a minute. During a relaxing massage, your heart rate lowers, as does your blood pressure and oxygen consumption. 

As your body relaxes, muscle tension lessens, and pain begins to subside. If you have any areas of stiffness or tight muscle knots, your massage therapist can use pressure point therapy and other massage modalities to release the excess tension.  

During a massage, not only does your body start to relax, but you also experience mental and emotional stress relief. Over the years, massage therapy has proven to help:  

  • Reduce the severity of emotional stress
  • Reduce anxiety before an exam or other intense problem-solving scenario
  • Reduce the effects of work stress
  • Reduce anxiety before a surgical procedure

Additionally, massage therapy can help the body heal, even reducing the symptoms that cancer patients experience.
