At work and at home, stress is at an all-time high. Job instability, long hours, increasing responsibility and unrealistic deadlines can cause serious problems for employees. On the home front, going through a divorce, caring for children, or coping with a life threatening illness are common situations that put people under intense stress.
To your body, stress is synonymous with change. Anything that causes a change in your life causes stress. Good or bad, if it is a change in your life, it is stress on your body.
Massage therapy is a wonderful way to relieve some of that stress. At Alaska Brain and Spine, we believe strongly in self awareness, holistic health and of course, the power of massage therapy. Be it emotional or physical stress, massage is as an effective and restorative approach to help facilitate a person through the repercussions of stress. It relaxes the body, helps clear the mind, calms nerves and promotes deeper sleep. In addition, it helps speed up recovery time from injuries, strengthens the immune system and reduces anxiety.
At Alaska Brain and Spine, we work together with our clients to meet the specific needs of each person. So whether you’re looking to decrease stress and/or pain, treat aching muscles or simply gain clarity in your personal life, we are here to help.
