Massage Therapy for Stress Relief

Sometimes it seems like everyday life gets more stressful with each passing day. Added stress can adversely affect our physical and mental well-being. Studies have shown, however, that massage therapy can greatly reduce stress and counteract its effects. Massage can help reduce anxiety, ease headaches and sooth tense muscles that are hampering your quality of life.

    Sometimes, alternating hot and cold treatment is just what is needed for the relief of soreness, aches and pains. The heat packs open blood vessels to promote healing and the cold reduces swelling and inflammation.

    Tension and stress can leave the neck, upper back and shoulders tight and sore. Wahl massagers can help provide relief. Most come with attachments that are designed to soothe specific areas of the body.

    Whether it’s after exercise or at the end of a long day, feet can get sore or inflamed, requiring some form of relief. Foot massagers help soothe aching arches, heels, toes and ankles, providing much needed rejuvenation.

    Sometimes the best way to promote recovery from aches, pains and injuries is through nerve stimulation. Electrotherapy TENS units can assist recovery and rehabilitation by delivering relief directly to the location of the pain, whether it’s in the neck, the feet or points in between.
