Relaxed Muscles: A Key To A Pain Free Life
Stress and Relaxation Massage

In today’s world, many people suffer from the stresses of everyday life which often leads to muscle pain, and tension. For many people this means stiffness and pain in the low back, upper back, neck and shoulders, which can be made worse by our jobs. People who sit at a computer all day, tend to keep their shoulders up instead of keeping them down and back. This can be made worse, by sitting for long periods of time without taking a break to move your joints and walk around. Those who have more physical type jobs where they have to stand, walk around, or lift things, often put a lot of stress on their bodies by lifting or moving the wrong way.

In any case, taking time to relax is something that can always be helpful for your muscles. Massage Therapy can be a very beneficial form of relaxation and it often starts as soon as the person lays down on the table and breathes in deeply. Having a massage strictly for relaxation doesn’t mean it has to be light pressure; it can be as deep as you would like and just like any other treatment, the therapist will be sure to ask if you require more or less pressure. For some people deeper strokes work best to soothe sore and tense muscles, while for others, a relaxing massage means light strokes which promote circulation and bring nutrients to the muscles to help them relax.

In either case when you leave a Massage Therapy session, you will most likely feel very relaxed and may even get a boost of energy after a short while, as some people do. Receiving Massage Therapy treatments for relaxation purposes on a regular basis, can help lower stress and keep your muscles from becoming tense and forming trigger points (knots).
