Stress: One of the main causes of anxiety and depression in this country. The effects of long term stress can lead to serious illness such as chronic fatigue, adrenal fatigue, digestive disorders, heart disease, and many more. We encounter stress through daily activities, past traumatic events and toxins.
There are many daily aggravations like money worries, relationships, kids and work that can send anyone over the edge. So how do you deal with stress in this day and age? One way to help with stress is meditation. In fact, some companies have initiated programs and made quiet, Zen spaces to promote meditation for employees. This also reduces absenteeism and medical cost.
Another very good way to relieve stress is with massage therapy. The best way to get the most out of you massage is to be fully relaxed. If you can`t relax, you are not reaping the full benefit of the therapy. That`s when knowing how to meditate can come in handy. Physically feeling and concentrating on each body part and feeling each one relax can help you get the most benefit from your massage.
Our bodies absorb many toxins from the foods we eat, air we breath and things we touch every day. These toxins can also put stress on our bodies. Massage therapy helps release many of these toxins. Increased water consumption after a massage will help to flush the toxins that were purged from the tissues as a result of the therapy.
