Defeat the Compounding Affects of Stress With Massage Therapy

The affects of stress go way beyond a tension headache here and there. Stress and the issues in your life that bring it on can cause very real problems for you physically and mentally. Stressful problems at home, work, or due to physical pain, illness or injury all leave residual affects behind such as increasing your blood pressure. This makes any type of pain worse and ultimately increases the stress hormone cortisol. Stress and the physiological effects it brings out in people can actually lead to an increase in white blood cells. This increase can directly affect your entire immune system. Once your immune system is compromised by stress, any ailment or illness will only worsen. While some may think reducing stress is just an afterthought, reducing stress can truly improve your health and well-being overall, mentally and physically.

One way we at Campanella Chiropractic and Wellness can help you begin to decrease your stress level is through treatment using massage therapy. Most people already know massage therapy is beneficial for many ailments such as back pain, headaches, and injuries; but it is also helpful for chronic fatigue syndrome, heart issues, and other problems that daily stress only enhances. When massage therapy significantly reduces stress levels, the practice also increases the workings of the immune system and encourages the release of feel good endorphins. This translates to an undeniable feeling of wellness and good health. Once you feel better and are enjoying a more stress-free feeling of being, you will notice an improvement in your physical problems.

Regular massage therapy for stress related problems from the highly trained professionals at Campanella Chiropractic and Wellness can lower blood pressure, improve flexibility, alleviate pain, increase circulation to various parts of the body, and increase energy. This gives you, the patient, the power to feel and live a more stress-free life. The release of stress through massage therapy compounds any other benefits you get from enjoying massage therapy. The physiological and mental benefits really are worth every second and beyond compare when you think about how many prescription medications are dished out to achieve the same affects. Massage therapy is noninvasive, free of harmful side effects, non-addictive, and it may be more affordable than you think. Check into the massage therapy techniques and the professionals at Campanella Chiropractic and Wellness to see if treating your stress with massage therapy may just what the doctor ordered.
