Is stress the cause of your muscle pain?

August 23rd, 2018 | Posted in Injuries, Massage

Anxiety causes muscle tension, when your fight or flight system is activated your muscles contract. When you’re stressed for an extensive period of time, your muscles never leave the contraction pages. Eventually this tension causes pain, discomfort, and trouble with mobility.

An effective treatment for this is a deep tissue remedial type massage done by a shilled therapist. Massage not only relaxes the tense muscles, increases flexibility, encourages blood flow which reduces swelling and eliminates pain. Massage boosts your levels or serotonin and dopamine hormones that your body produces to promote healing, boost your mood and calm your nerves.
