What Causes Stress?


Ever feel like you're on autopilot? After working 8-9 hours in the office, you rush home, prepare dinner, and start your bedtime routine to do it all over again. Does this sound familiar? This fast-pacing rhythm of life can create a lot of mental and physical tension. We forget to take those much-needed moments to mentally decompress, relax, and enjoy life!


The world we live in nowadays has become really hectic. We work so much and don't even notice any more symptoms of physical stress and anxiety. Thus our stress levels are reaching peaks never seen before.


In US 60-90% doctor appointments are related to stress. Nearly five of six leading causes of death are linked to stress. In a World Health Organization (WHO) Global Burden of Disease Survey it has been predicted that by the year 2020, stress-related mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression could become the second leading cause of death. The rise is especially sharp in developing countries due to social problems and unrest.

We all know how it is pleasant to have someone rubbing our back. When you receive treatment from a trained therapist, it won’t only be pleasant. But it can have incredible physical and emotional benefits.


Choosing to receive a massage should not be seen as an expense. But rather see it as an investment in your health and happiness. Regular massage therapy can be the first step to take care of yourself, get relief from stress and dedicate an hour of your week to your well-being.


It is essential to schedule your “me-time” as it is to schedule your work commitments and family duties.


In the last two decades, more research has been done into regular massage’s therapeutic effects, investigating its benefits and mechanisms, and now showing proven clinical outcomes.


A recent study found that most people investing in regular massage do so for medical or stress-related reasons. Significant new research suggests that regular massage therapy offers even more advantages than infrequent sessions.


Ready to de-stress on a deeper level? Let's explore how incorporating de-stress massage therapy into your monthly routine can transform your well-being.



What Are The 5 Key Benefits of Regular Massage?


1. MUSCLE RELAXATION & PAIN RELIEF


Sitting Still Can Mean Pain in Motion. With repetitive movements and long periods of sitting, it’s natural to develop a lot of tension in your neck and back muscles. The discomfort can then create a cycle of stress and low mood.

But Regular Massage can be your Preventative Ally. Because it can release built-up tension muscle knots, promoting better flexibility and reducing pain. Regularly addressing muscle tension may help prevent the development of more serious issues down the line.


Regular deep tissue massage therapy can help you recover faster when you follow a strenuous fitness regime such a 12 week marathon training plan. In fact, it can speed up recovery when you workout. Because it increases oxygen-rich blood flow to reach the muscles, flushing out the metabolic waste of hard exercise, delivering fresh nutrients, thus healing that area.


After you workout, it is essential that you stretch out. But as we all know, most of us don’t spend enough time doing so and get muscles soreness and tightness. Remedial types of Massage, such as our signature Deep tissue massage London is a very effective method to release all that tension, improve joint mobility and flexibility and speed up recovery time, preventing injuries to occur.


People who receive regular treatments and plan them strategically with their workout routine are able to train strenuously for events injury-free.



2. STRESS MANAGEMENT STRATEGY


Stress is a healthy response to our body, which protects us when we perceived a stressor. But, if this stress-response is constantly turned on, it has a very detrimental for the body. Because stress hormones levels don't return to normal and the body can’t resume its regular activities.


This long-term activation of the stress-response system can increase the risk of developing numerous health problems. Some of the most common symptoms of chronich stress are:


  • anxiety

  • depression

  • heart disease

  • tension headaches

  • weight gain


Therefore it is so important we all find effective ways to manage stress and not just leave it to chance. The good news is that there is no need for chemicals to combat stress and feel high! You just need to get a regular stress relief massage!


Numerous studies revealed that massage therapy releases the so-called 'feel-good’ hormones (endorphins, serotonin and dopamine) in the brain. As a consequence, it provides an effective natural remedy to stress and anxiety.


Moreover, De stress Massage therapy doesn’t have any nasty side effects like some other medical approaches. Its effects are all positive, it can clear your mind and improve your mood! It’s no wonder people who book regular massage appointments report a drastic reduction in stress and enhanced health benefits.



3. BOOST IMMUNITY


Another of the benefits of regular massage therapy is that increases circulation, while also promoting the better movement of lymph within the body. This is the fluid responsible for fighting infection in the body, thus strengthening our immune system.


If this is your main concern, try our Lymphatic drainage massage London! This is a specialised type of bodywork that helps to cleanse your body’s tissues. Because it redirects lymph from congested tissues where it is not effectively draining, to areas of the body where it can be filtered and flushed out.


Lymphatic drainage massage offers a double dose of goodness. It tackles physical concerns while simultaneously promoting deep relaxation, making it a fantastic de stress massage therapy.


Regular treatments can also be incredibly effective to help you during the change of seasons, after an illness or surgery, or following a particularly stressful time in your life.



5. IMPROVE SLEEPING PATTERNS


If you suffer from insomnia or have a difficult time falling asleep, try to receive regular massage therapy instead of trying sleeping pills.


Massage therapy induces a De Stress relaxation response. This calms your heart rate. It also aids in the body’s release of serotonin, that is so important for a good night of rest.

And if a single massage can improve your sleep, imagine what monthly massages can do.

Remember that just because massage feels like pampering doesn’t make it any less therapeutic; it’s rather an investment in your health and it can actually pay for itself by reducing your medical bills. 


It can help you prevent the costs, stress, pain, discomfort and upheaval associated with chronic health conditions such as back pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, anxiety and depression.

How Often Shall I Receive a Stress Relief Massage?


While we recommend a different course of treatment depending on the individual situation, here is a general guide to the most common conditions we treat and what we usually find most compelling.


ANXIETY AND STRESS RELIEF


If you seek help in alternative therapies to get relief from anxiety and stress, we’d initially suggest you come to see us every week or other week. While stress relief massage can be incredibly effective on its own, a multi-pronged approach can be even better.


Try combining it with Acupuncture for Anxiety, and Home Natural Remedies to optimise your well-being faster.


GENERAL WELLBEING


Our De stress Massage therapy is a great choice to boost your mood and keep you in good health. Invest in your health with a regular massage once a month.


INJURY RECOVERY


If you are a fitness lover and do vigorous exercises it is likely you experience some sort of injuries every now and then. Strenuous exercise puts you at a higher risk of tearing your muscles. You may have not stretched or warmed up properly or done an exercise routine incorrectly. If you injured your muscles or joints, regular massage therapy can do wonders for you.


Depending on the gravity of the injury, the frequency of treatment that we would recommend may vary, but at the beginning we usually see the most results when someone commits twice a week to Deep tissue massage and/or acupuncture treatment and cupping massage for at least the first 4 weeks. We would then gradually decrease the frequency as the symptoms improve.


 

Now that you understand the benefits of regular massage for stress relief and more, the choice is yours! Consider incorporating a monthly treatment into your routine and see how it elevates your well-being.
