Avoid Holiday Stress with Massage Therapy

Written By Eastlake Chiropractic and Massage Center on November 23, 2018

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – until you find yourself so stressed out you feel miserable, wound up, and completely exhausted. 

From entertaining guests to buying presents for everyone you know, it’s no surprise that many of us find ourselves suffering from holiday stress each and every year. 

But don’t let the festivities take over your life this year.Enjoy ongoing stress relief with massage therapy at your local chiropractic clinic in Seattle. 

The Impact of Stress on Your Body 

Stress isn’t just that unbearable feeling that you can no longer deal with the growing to-do list you’ve written for yourself. It can also have a detrimental impact on your mental and physical health. 

When holiday stress hits, it can take over your personal and professional life, presenting itself in a variety of ways, including higher blood pressure. It can really start to take its toll. 

And as your body becomes even tenser, your spine may lock itself in an incorrect position, thus restricting healthy function of your central nervous system. This, in turn, has a direct impact on your body’s ability to heal and recover – hence why many of us find ourselves fighting colds during the holiday season. 

Ultimately, holiday stress is something you should try and avoid at all costs as it may severely impact your overall health.

How Can Massage Therapy Provide Stress Relief? 

Massage therapists are trained to use a number of techniques that target the muscles and tissues in your body, eradicating any tension that’s built up in these areas. In doing this, they lower the stress in your body and boost your mindset. 

Furthermore, recent studies have highlighted how treatments at a chiropractic clinic can help keep cortisol levels in check. Cortisol is a hormone that’s related to stress, causing inflammation and irritation. So by targeting this, it should help eradicate your stress.

When combined, massage and chiropractic will help improve your sleep, aid mobility, regulate your hormones, and boost your health – all of which go a long way to helping you feel positive and healthy.

Say Goodbye to Holiday Stress 

As well as these beneficial treatments, your massage therapist will also be able to offer lifestyle advice that covers your diet, exercise, and day-to-day tasks, helping you manage them all to keep stress levels to a minimum. 

And when combined with your massage, this will ensure holiday stress is a thing of the past so Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year.
