Complete Wellness: March Madness Stress

 

Are you tired of the cold winter weather? Busy and stressed at work? Busy trying to organize March Break for your kids? See how massage therapy can help your stress!

With tax season approaching, the cold winter weather and busy schedules, the month of March can be a very hectic and stressful month for people. Massage therapy is a great tool to help relax and unwind. Many people feel stress as physical symptoms in the body. With constant stress, the body becomes more tense and muscular tension increases. With the increase in muscle tension, it may lead to stiff and achy joints, headaches and general neck and back pain. Massage techniques can help decrease tension by manipulating the tissue and decreasing myofascial restrictions, reducing trigger points, stretching muscles and improving circulation.  Also, with constant added stress it can decrease immune system activity. During the cold winter months this can be problematic and increase the risk of getting the flu or a cold. Massage therapy and techniques used can allow the body to relax and restore circulation and help increase immune system activity.

These are just a few ways on how massage therapy can help reduce stress. Let us at Complete Wellness Clinic help and get your body feeling its best.
