The holiday season is perhaps the most anticipated time of year and is full of food, family, friends, and celebration. But this time of year also brings cluttered schedules and big responsibilities — all of which can be major sources of stress. Instead of allowing yourself to become overwhelmed this season, make a plan to incorporate massage therapy into your life and rub away the pain.
Massage therapy is a simple and easy way to lower stress. Here at Parnell Family Chiropractic, we offer multiple massage therapy programs designed to help patients relax. Stress has been shown to cause muscle tension and headaches — both of which can cause chronic discomfort as stress rises throughout the holiday season. Our massage services act as natural painkillers, loosening painful tension and releasing endorphins into the bloodstream.
Eliminating Stress Has Big Health Benefits
Frequent massage can improve your overall health and wellbeing. Massage therapy can improve circulation throughout the body’s soft tissues, lowering blood pressure and boosting the body’s immunity. This can help you fight off infections as flu season approaches — especially if your holiday schedule includes many gatherings and event.
We recommend periodic massages throughout the holidays and especially when your schedule becomes its busiest. We are aware that it is perhaps even more difficult to squeeze in a chiropractic visit this time of year, but doing so can reduce the symptoms of muscle tension, making the remainder of your events and occasions more pleasant.
Do you experience greater stress and muscle tension around the holiday season? If so, have you considered massage therapy as a possible remedy?
