Stress Relief – Stress is everywhere. It permeates every aspect of our lives, but few have stopped to consider the overwhelming effect it has on health and wellness. Its effects can be felt physically, mentally, and emotionally. Events associated with the joys of life can be as damaging as the calamities faced every day. As a first line of defense, massage can aid in grounding and centering. Massage can help restore balance providing relief from the sometimes helpless, out-of-control feeling stress can cause. The techniques associated with stress relief are more general in nature, applied in a more relaxed manner and can promote a general sense of well-being.
