Kylie Ellison a licensed Texas massage therapist offers tips. Life is full of stress. Sometimes these stressors can make you sick mentally and physically. According to Gallup, 55% of Americans experience stress during the day. The American Psychological Association also reported that since 2014, U.S. citizens rated their stress level as a 4.9 on a scale from 1 to 10.
One of the most common sources of stress is the workplace. According to The American Institute of Stress, 65% of workers said that workplace stress had caused difficulties, and more than 10% described these as having major effects.
Sixty-two percent of those who were surveyed said that at the end of the day the stress they suffered in the workplace caused them neck pains. Others reported difficulty in sleeping, the strain on their eyes, pain in their hands, and need to call in sick because of job stress.
If you are someone who regularly suffers work-related stress, you may need regular sessions of massage therapy. Continue reading to find out the top benefits of regular massage sessions in helping you combat the negative impact of stress.
How Regular Massage Can Help You Avoid the Negative Impact of Stress on Your Health?
Help with Relaxation
Getting a regular dose of full body massage can help you avoid being fatigue and help you relax both physically and mentally. A massage brings you out of your stressful situation and allows you to feel pampered and well-rested. As the Acupuncture Massage College explains: "Massage stimulates and releases tension in muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, and joints, keeping them more fluid and less prone to injury." - (Source)
How Does Massage Offer Stress Relief?
Relaxation is the opposite of stress; when you are relaxed, your stress is relieved. A regular massage therapy lessens the ill effects caused by chronic stress because it helps decrease cortisol and insulin levels. "massage has a direct impact on lowering the levels of stress hormones that create the 'fight-or-flight' response, and can boost 'feel good' neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin, endorphins, and oxytocin."

Improves Blood Circulation
A regular massage improves the elasticity of blood vessels and improves blood flow which in turn increases oxygen to tissues, resulting in a measurable reduction in high blood pressure associated with a stressful lifestyle. Good blood circulation helps to combat overall stress.
Does Massage Boosts Immunity?
Because regular massage reduces the chance of unnecessary stress, it allows your body's resources to be allocated elsewhere, thus naturally increasing immunity to infectious disease..
Regular massages have been shown to make the immune system stronger, according to studies. "Researchers working with patients with compromised immune systems have found massage therapy can improve how the immune system functions," said Jeff Smoot, 2015 President of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA)." - (Source)
All these benefits have one thing in common. They help you combat the ill effects of stress to your body. But, just like exercise, you need to incorporate massage into your lifestyle regularly to get these benefits in full.
