Recover From Stress With Massage Therapy

Ongoing stress and anxiety can take their toll on the human body, and most people needlessly cope with stress-related aches and pains. Just one session with a licensed massage therapist, however, can offer significant relief for many of the muscular ailments that plague the human body. Whether you're an athlete in training or a college student dealing with the stress of finals, massage therapy can truly prove helpful to people of any age.

A muscle knot is often a product of ongoing stress and anxiety. This occurs when various muscles of the body have constricted, causing persistent discomfort. A Swedish massage goes deep into the muscle to extend muscle fibers and restore them to their natural balance. This method focuses on problem locations with deep, long strokes with a higher intensity and pressure than a standard massage in order to offer optimal benefits.

Many jobs require people to maintain a sedentary position that results in imperfect posture and increased tension in our upper extremities. Something as simple as a chair massage can help stretch and ease tight muscles for healthy circulation. This can prevent the hardening of blood vessels and promote overall health. By focusing on upper extremity pain, a chair massage can help treat headache, neck pain, hypertension, and a number of other conditions caused by stress and anxiety. If your daily stress has led to muscle knots and tension, make an appointment with LaVida Massage of Ann Arbor today, and enjoy the soothing relief your body needs.
