How Massage Helps With Stress

As school starts, there are a lot of changes taking place. If you’re wondering how to stay stress-free so that you can perform well academically, call Health and Wellness Services. One of the best stress-reducing resources we provide to students is a free one-hour massage, given by licensed, professional massage therapists with years of experience.

Massage improves circulation of blood flow, which oxygenates the body. This improves organ function, regulates blood pressure, boosts immunity function, soothes muscle aches and tension, and eliminates harmful toxins from the body. All of this will help you stay healthy, which helps with the physical responses to stress. Massage also helps improve sleep quality, which reduces the amount of fatigue you feel, increases energy, and can improve your concentration.

Along with a massage, there are many things to do to keep stress at bay, such as drinking water, eating healthy, having a sense of humor, prioritizing, and not worrying over the things you can’t control. Bottom line: take care of yourself.

Getting a massage is one of the most beneficial things you can do to help keep yourself healthy and stress-free. Call and reserve your appointment today!
