Massage for Immediate Stress Relief

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

In a stress emergency, massage can provide immediate relief that refocus your attention away from your worries and tensions.

Massage triggers the relaxation response, taking your body off high alert and setting in motion the biological processes needed to restore your resources and reverse the physical responses of fight, flight, or fawn.

With massage, touch sends your nervous system the signal that it’s okay to take a break, allowing your body and mind relax and unwind.
