New Year, Less Stress: Why Massage Therapy Will Be Helpful in 2021

With the new year upon us, there is importance in deciding how you will be taking care of yourself better in 2021. This year has been full of fear, uncertainty, and stress. Many individuals are creating a plan for how they will reduce their stress in the new year. One of the best ways to feel immediate stress reduction is massage therapy. If you are looking to be a healthier and less stressed version of yourself in 2021, consider getting a massage.

Stress is a large component in today’s fast-paced, and uncertain world right now, which negatively impacts an individual’s health and well-being. Stress can result in you feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and tense. Coping with stress is challenging, especially during COVID-19. Over time, continued stress on your body can result in serious health problems like heart disease, high blood pressure, or mental illnesses, such as depression or anxiety. If you take practical steps to manage your stress, you may reduce the risk of these negative health effects. One evidence-based approach to stress reduction is massage therapy.

Massage therapy is widely used across the globe to create feelings of deep relaxation and stress reduction. Numerous studies have proved that massage therapy positively affects our physical and mental health, nearly instantly. Massage therapy activates neurotransmitters that can decrease anxiety and lower stress hormones. Additionally, massage lowers your heart rate and blood pressure, relaxes your muscles, and increases the production of endorphins (your body’s “feel good” chemicals). This results in a feeling of calmness and relaxation, as well as ahappier version of you - something we all need going into the new year.
