How a Massage Works to Reduce Stress Levels

Stress can be caused by a number of factors, including short-term stress that comes from being stuck in traffic or running late to something important, as well as long-term stress related to financial troubles, work related issues, illness or relationship problems. Fortunately, a massage at a chiropractic clinic in Melbourne can work to reduce the pressure felt from these problems.

Various Techniques

There are a range of techniques involved in massage, and it’s mostly about finding the right one for you. Chiropractic clinics in Melbourne usually offer a range of services, including deep tissue massage, sports massage, reflexology and therapeutic massage. The most common type of massage for relaxation purposes is the therapeutic or Swedish massage. This uses varying degrees of pressure at certain points on the body to reduce stress and improve mood. Essential oils and relaxing music also help to melt the stress away.

General Benefits

A massage from an experienced masseuse or chiropractor in Melbourne can help alleviate stress by reducing blood pressure calming the nervous system, and releasing feel good neurotransmitters. This can provide immediate relief to the symptoms of stress as well as improving skin quality, boosting circulation, assisting in soft tissue injuries and improving mood and sleep.

Muscular Benefits

Constant or ongoing stress can cause muscles to tense up, which can cause tightness and other aches and pains in the body over time. A massage treatment helps released this tension and helps the muscles to relax through rubbing, stretching or applying gentle pressure. When your muscles return to their relaxed state, your whole body will naturally feel better and will encourage your mind to follow suit. A lowered heart rate, improved blood circulation and relaxed muscles are some of the physical benefits of a stress relieving massage.
