How massage can help with stress

Posted on:September 28, 2021


Stress can creep up on us without us really noticing. In some cases it isn’t until we have navigated the stressful situation or moment that we realise how it has affected us, emotionally, mentally and physically. There are a number of things that you can do to help alleviate stress, both in the moment and afterwards. A massage is one such thing and a Mobile Massage London company such as zyona massage will be able to talk you through the different types of massage and which ones are most effective for stress.

Massage helps to release the tension that we hold in our bodies. This can be as a result of sitting at a desk for long periods of time or it can be as a result of stress. As we become more and more stressed in our lives our postures start to slip and we often sit hunched up with our shoulders climbing ever closer to our ears. This tension creates problems in the upper and lower back and can often result in pain and sore muscles. All of which can be alleviated with a massage.

Massage can also help with rebalancing our hormones. It can increase the levels of dopamine that is in our system which is a natural chemical that helps us feel good. In contrast it can also help reduce the amount of adrenaline and cortisol that we have in our blood streams, both of which can make us feel tense and stressed.
