Therapeutic massage delivers stress relief for stressful times

The stock market. The housing market. The job market. The market market. With the only certainty in today’s economy being uncertainty, it’s no wonder stress levels are rising faster than our national debt.

And stress is nothing to mess with. Both short- and long-term stress triggers changes in the body, increasing the likelihood of getting sick, raising the risk of serious conditions like heart disease, and worsening problems we already have. In fact, some experts believe stress-related tension accounts for 80-90 percent of disease.

But you don’t have to stand for stress. Instead, sit – in a Human Touch® massage chair. Frequent massage from high-end massage chairs has been proven to improve the mind’s ability to monitor stress signals and respond appropriately, enhancing capacity for calm thinking and creativity. Massage also eases tight muscles and releases endorphins, which help the body feel better, enabling restorative relaxation, improving mood and helping the mind and body maintain a healthy state.

Additionally, regular massage enables the mind and body to rest and enjoy deeper, more restorative sleep that contributes to overall wellbeing. Not to mention the physical benefits of therapeutic massage such as back pain relief, improved circulation and alleviation of chronic conditions such as arthritis and bursitis.

So instead of dealing with stress by chomping on your fingernails, handfuls of antacid or your 401k statement, try something a little more healthy and effective – therapeutic massage from Human Touch massage chairs. With stress alleviated and the body well rested, you’ll feel better, play better and perform better. Even if the markets don’t.
