Stress is the body's natural way of elevating your heart rate, putting your senses on high alert, and essentially say, "Get ready! Something big is going on." The problem is that in today's modern world, sometimes it's rare that something big isn't going on. Some of us don't get a break from the stresses of our jobs, our family lives, and our daily tasks.

How Massage Therapy Helps
The symptoms of a highly-stressed life are perfect candidates for reduction or elimination through massage therapy. Stress relief is one of the biggest benefits of massage therapy, and the effects can sometimes be felt immediately. With just one session, you'll experience a lower heart rate, better blood pressure, an increase in endorphins, and more relaxation in your tight muscles. The serotonin and dopamine released during a massage therapy session can also help improve your sleep and ability to manage your body's natural reaction to stress.
