As Pressure Mounts

Part three of Stress Relief With Massage Therapy, a mini blog series from Marie Wagner, LMT

You may find that as your stress goes without relief, you become less and less able to unwind.

Muscle tension can develop into problems such as chronic headaches or shoulder and back pain, which are themselves stressful.

Worry and physical tension can interfere with sleep, leaving you exhausted with little energy or mental focus to tackle your problems. You may even find your normal coping mechanisms add stress as you struggle to find time for exercise or social engagements.

As pressure mounts, the level of stress hormones in your bloodstream can become so high that little is needed to trigger a stress response. You may find yourself constantly agitated, reacting not only to actual events, but to anticipated events and memories.
