How Serious Stress Can Be, And How Massages Can Help

A good number of massage types are designed specifically to help with sports-related injuries and pain, but this kind of therapy can also improve mental health and wellbeing. Many don’t realise the benefits to your body that massages actually have!

Massage therapy, often integrated as a part of remedial massages and Swedish massages, is used traditionally for relieving the aches and pains of everyday life and giving the recipient a small break from troubles. They can help to relax tight or sore muscles, enhance flexibility and range of motion, and improve blood circulation, but one of their most beneficial effects is stress relief. Stress is a prime contributor to many chronic diseases, and can make current symptoms of said conditions even worse – many don’t realise how serious stress can become, which is why the benefits of massages should be made more widely known. Massages can help to combat these built-up feelings and anxieties, and in turn, the risk of depression, disturbed sleep patterns, and fatigue is heavily reduced. A combination of slower breathing and pain relief from specialised massage techniques help to quieten the mind and relax the whole body, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed and putting you in a better state of mind to continue with your daily activities.

It’s important to combat stress before it starts to have too much of a negative impact on your day-to-day life. Whilst stress is completely normal and even considered to be a stimulus to act and grow, too much or a build-up of it can have serious repercussions. Persistent reactions to stress can put a strain on both your heart and your gut, leading to a 60% increased risk of cardiovascular disease and digestive problems, as well as being a main perpetrator of accelerated aging and decreased immune system functioning. So while a little bit of adrenaline may be ‘good’ for you, prolonged stress is very detrimental to your health and should be treated.

Everyone has dealt with worries, anxieties, and even anger, especially when things you’ve thought that you had on track go wrong or you feel overworked and drained from even the simplest tasks. LiveWell Health offer a wide range of massage techniques that can improve a multitude of health aspects from general wellbeing to complications and ailments, and from aches and pains to psychological stability. Sports massages will help you to improve agility and recover from sporting injuries, whilst Swedish and remedial massages can improve circulation, mental health and wellbeing, and generally make you feel great. All of these massages are carried out by experienced professionals with industry training and so you can be sure that you’re receiving the best quality treatment for whatever it is that’s affecting you.

My partner and I booked a Sports Massage with Steve recently as an alternative to a romantic night in (haha!). We both suffer with shoulder tension and knots in our shoulders and calves. Steve was incredibly professional and came and set up quickly - in the comfort of our own home, whilst our toddler was in bed. I have neglected myself a little since my son was born as I don't get chance to do things for myself any more (and with all the child lugging it's so much more needed!) and so this was an absolute god send. I will be booking future appointments and would recommend anyone to give LiveWell Health a try.

Very professional I've had trouble on my legs and arms and over time with my sessions with Steve have got back to being fighting fit again

Absolutely fantastic service. From the first contact to the actual massage, it was faultless. I required a deep tissue massage to help recover from daily training and Steve targeted all my problem areas and I feel brilliant. Would recommend this outstanding service to anyone.
