Stress Management and Control
Stress Management – the need to control distress.
Stress helps keep us alert, motivates us to face challenges, and drives us to solve problems. Stress is a very natural and important part of life. Low levels of stress are manageable and can be thought of as necessary and normal stimulation. ‘Distress’ however results when our body over-react to events producing a “fight or flight” reaction. Blood vessels and the digestive system contract, heartbeat increases, the liver releases more glucose into the muscles, the mouth feels dry and muscles tense. Prolonged distress is very damaging to both our physical health and mental well being.
Stress management and control through massage
The art of relieving symptoms of physical tension and mental stress by the use of massage has been practiced since the beginning of time. Massage has been used through the centuries and to the present day in China, India, ancient Egypt and Greece. Humans and many animal have always used touch to reassure and calm themselves and others. When we hurt ourselves we instinctively rub where it hurts.
Stress management – Break the cycle.
Failure to manage and control stress can result in tense neck and shoulder muscles, leading to stiffness, headaches and then – even more stress. You can break this cycle with a short massage.
Massage helps to relax the mind, body and spirit, creating a feeling of peace, calm and well being. It allows the nervous system to return to a natural balance, reducing many stress-related conditions, such as palpitations, negative emotional feelings and raised blood pressure.
A regular massage every day, even if you’re not feeling stressed is the most excellent stress management and control tool and undoubtedly the best preventive health measure available.

Relaxing in the chair can be an ideal time to revise the days plans. If things are really getting on top of you, set an automatic massage pattern and phone an old friend. Within a few minutes your perspectives will change and most problems will simply disappear
