3 Ways Massage Therapy Relieves Stress, Honolulu, Hawaii

Since 1992, April has been designated National Stress Awareness Month, during which health and wellness professionals work together to shine a spotlight on the causes of stress and find physiological and psychological solutions. For instance, one particularly effective way to relieve stress is the use of massage therapy. It has both physical and mental benefits that help you relax and shed much of the body's tension. Below is a list of ways this approach will benefit you.

How Massage Therapy Helps You Relieve Stress

1. Relieves Pain

Massage therapyClients experiencing migraines, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, and other types of chronic pain have discovered that massage therapy can be an effective treatment for pain relief. Chronic pain is often accompanied by depression, anxiety, and feelings of hopelessness. Minimizing this discomfort helps patients enjoy a brighter outlook and reduced tension.

2. Helps With Insomnia

Stressed-based insomnia is a vicious cycle because lack of sleep makes you less able to emotionally cope with stressors. Moreover, it increases anxiety about whether you'll be able to sleep, and thus makes a good night's sleep more difficult to achieve. Massage therapy has been shown to help with insomnia and to promote healthful rest, thus ending this cycle.

3. Relieves Muscle Tension

When you are under stress, you store it as tension within your muscles. It changes the way you stand, sit, move, and hold yourself. Massage therapy helps remove muscle tension by increasing blood flow and oxygen levels in affected areas. A visit to a reputable massage clinic can do wonders when your muscles are tense and cramped.
