What is stress?

Stress is caused by many different things in our lives. It is often related to work, family, personal relationships and overall lifestyle choices that can affect us both negatively or positively.

People with high stress levels are more likely to suffer from anxiety disorders which have been linked with serious health problems such as heart disease and even cancer. The key to dealing with stress is finding what the trigger is and what helps you relax. There are plenty of ways to help with stress some natural and other ways such as meditation and hobbies.

How can an aromatherapy massage help with stress?

Lavender is known for its calming effects and Rosemary is uplifting.

There are many oils that can help with stress such as Chamomile, Jasmine, Clary Sage which all have a sedative effect on the human body.

You could also try using this oil in your diffuser or as a massage. We prefer a massage for the full effects and this is a completely natural approach.

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is the inability to relax and control one’s thoughts. It is very hard to manage with medication or other types of therapy but an aromatherapy massage can help you be calm, relaxed and in control.

The oils used during your visit will work directly on the limbic system which controls our emotions, memories and behaviour.

How does anxiety affect the brain?

During anxiety the limbic system becomes overactive and releases excess amounts of hormones that cause your heart rate to increase, hands to sweat, you may feel hot or nauseous.

This is caused by an overload of neurotransmitters such as dopamine which can be reduced with an aromatherapy massage.

Anxiety cannot just go away overnight and takes time to work out your triggers but it can be helped successfully and everyone is different.

Deep Tissue Massage – A Solution for Athletes and Non-Athletes by liam

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on the deep layer of muscle and connective tissues within the body. This style of massage can be beneficial for both athletes and non-athletes, with many professional athletes choosing this type of massage to help their injuries heal faster. To learn more about why deep tissue massages are so beneficial, read below!

Why do athletes need deep tissue massage?

Athletes of all types can benefit from deep tissue massage, particularly if they are recovering from an injury. Deep tissue massages help athletes recover faster by reducing their recovery time and preventing future injuries.

When you get a deep tissue massage it will break up the scar tissues that have built up in your muscle fibre as well as release anything trapped inside. This release of toxins is also referred to as ‘flushing’ and can help speed up the healing process.

Not only that, but deep tissue massages are extremely relaxing for athletes after a long day at work or hours spent on their feet training so hard! This type of massage will leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready to take on the world.

Can a normal person get relief?

Yes! Believe it or not, deep tissue massages are a great way to relax and relieve tension in everyday people. If you have been sitting at your computer for too long, gardening all day, spending hours on the bus commuting to work then this type of massage is going to be just what you need. The benefits range from muscle relaxation after a long week on your feet or common activities that can strain the muscles including sports and hiking and cycling.

Who should perform a deep tissue massage?

A professional masseuse is obviously who you should ask for one of these types of massages, but if this isn’t an option, don’t worry! There are many great techniques to perform yourself. It may take some practice before you perfect the art though so I would recommend watching some youtube videos or even taking a few lessons on how to properly.

 

if I take medication is a massage still safe?

No, it is not recommended to have a massage if you are taking medication. Massage therapy can cause the body to release toxins that are stored in tissues and muscles into your bloodstream which may interfere with medications or worsen the side effects of meds. It’s always best to speak to your doctor and masseuse before the session for further guidance.
