The Five Major Ways Massages Help Relieve Stress:

  1. 1: Massage Can Help Relax Your Muscles. Now? Long-term? Tell me more.

    When you’re stressed your muscles contract and become tense. If this continues long term? Your muscles may STAY sore! Not only that, but this tension could lead to headaches and chronic body pain. Marietta Massage therapists focus on your particular points of pain to lessen built-up tension in your body.

    2. Massage could help lower your cortisol levels. Who says? What does that do?

    Sciency? Check out the entire .gov report HERE that explains how a clinical trial found massage can lower your cortisol levels. The Faculty of Medicine in association with the University of Chile in Santiago tested this premise. Would massage lower cortisol more than just rest? Cortisol, a hormone linked to stress, can lead to adrenal fatigue when elevated. After just a few moments of relaxing massage the salivary cortisol level was lowered in study participants. In everyday English? Massage could lower your stress levels. It’s been shown to lower your heart rate. Relax at Marietta Massage. 

    3. Massage Can Help or Treat Injuries. How? Athletes know:

    4. Massages Are Associated With Increased Blood Flow. Why that’s good:

    Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s a great article from a Doctor. Check out her quote: “Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to working cells throughout the body, including the skin.” Ellen Marmur, MD, Mount Sinai School of Medicine.  Massages can lead to increased blood flow and circulation throughout the body. This can lead to improved function in your brain and other organs. Let’s get that blood pumping, shall we? Scheduled yet? 

    5. It’s Said Massages Can Remove Toxins. How does that help me? 

    Marietta Massage will advise you to drink a lot of water before and after your appointment. The massage process is thought by some to release toxins. And further, that when your body is properly hydrated the bloodstream will release those, and flush them out through the kidneys. While whether this actually true remains contested, it is believed that massage can help boost your immune system. A better immune system is better equipped to fight environmental toxins. Less toxins in the body should lead to greater overall health.  Have more questions about the benefits of getting a massage? Contact us for more info at the number below. Ready to go?
