Do you have a major project deadline approaching at work or at school? Do you have a long commute through Austin traffic every morning? No matter what the cause, external or internal, we all experience stress on a daily basis. Although stress is something we learn to tolerate, or worse ignore, research indicates that a majority of illness stems from unbridled stress. Combatting your emotional and physical stress is a key factor in improving your overall health and wellness. What better way to begin battling your physical and emotional stress than with a monthly massage?
Monthly massage therapy treatment is one of the best and most enjoyable ways to combat your daily stress. Massage therapy is proven to both lower cortisol, a hormone your body produces in response to stress, and increase serotonin (often referred to as the happy molecule) which helps the body fight pain and feelings of sadness. Almost all of the widely taught self-care practices, including exercise, yoga, and meditation work to achieve this result. However, massage is among the most effective wellness practices if you struggle with anxiety or stress.
Whether your stress is physical or emotional, monthly massage will naturally uplift your mood and your energy levels. If you’ve fallen out of your self-care routine or have had a hard time finding one that fits your life, a massage therapy session could be just the boost you need to get your body and mind into the groove. Don’t let your stress get the best of you. Book your next massage treatment session at our South Austin location.
