How To Relieve Stress with Massage Therapy
published on September 28, 2014
massaging head to relieve stress

With Fall in full swing, getting back into the routine of work and school can be stressful. Taking time to find some relief from this tension can ultimately help
you with work, your physical health, and relax your mind as well. Stress can affect your body and mind, making it important to relieve, and almost all stress-related symptoms can be relieved with the art of massage.
Adding a therapeutic massage to your monthly routine can help you look, feel, and actually be healthier. A massage can help take your mind off of any stressful thoughts related to your busy lifestyle. Stress can also cause muscular tension, which can be relieved by various techniques used by massage therapists to return muscles to their relaxed state.

Certain massage therapy techniques can be done at home, such as a head massage to relieve headaches. Try out a massage at home by giving yourself a relaxing head message with this technique:

  • Take your middle and index fingers and place them on each temple.
  • Close your eyes and start massaging each temple in a circular motion.
  • Move up along your hairline until you reach the middle of your forehead.
  • Move directly down, still using a circular motion, until you reach your brow bone.
  • Finally, move back to the temples and repeat.

This simple technique can help you feel better in a matter of minutes!

Although at-home massages can be a good way to relieve quick tension or pains, visiting a massage therapist will give you the best results for the long term. The Spa Terme Di Aroma provides a variety of massages including the September’s popular Stress Relief Neck & Shoulder Massage, which focuses on a relaxing Swedish massage technique to help loosen tight muscles, soothe soreness and increase circulation in your neck, shoulders and lower back.

Feel rejuvenated and stress free with massage therapy to help knock any summer tension away and prep you for a busy and exciting year!
