and the list goes on!
We all feel the effects of stress to a certain extent. However, what many of us sadly consider "normal", many times turns out to be negative effects of stress and it's long chain of directly-related diseases. For example, it is not normal to feel anxious, exhausted, to be unable to sleep or to have high blood pressure. Too many of us have accepted so many stress-related issues as a "natural part of aging", and yet very few of us take preventive measures to avoid these issues to begin with.
MASSAGE AND BODYWORK CAN HELP!
Did You Know...
People who experience high levels of stress tend to get sick more than others
When stress is combined with a lack of sleep and poor nutrition,
our body's ability to naturally protect itself against bacteria and infection is greatly reduced.
Numerous studies have indicated that massage increases the immune system's level of the body's natural "killer cells," which improve the body's overall immune function. Regular massage therapy treatments help boost the immune system. When your immune system is stronger, your body is more prepared to defend itself against those cold and flu viruses going around your workplace, school or even your home during the winter months.
So keep yourself healthy during the long winter months by scheduling
regular massage appointments.
