12 Days of Christmas 2011 - Day 5

On The 5th Day Of Christmas, Wee Sally gave to me... A Way To Combat Stress!

What Causes Stress? Many simple daily tasks can cause stress. Exams, Deadlines, Traffic, Relationships... All of the above? When you are in a stressful situation your hormones kick in sending adrenaline into your bloodstream, this can cause high blood pressure, shallow breathing, you start to sweat and become all tense. Now this is where massage helps. Although stress cannot be completely eliminated from our daily lives, regular massages can help to manage it. Receiving a massage triggers the parasympathetic nervous system. This only happens when you completely relax, so ideally you want a relaxation massage such as Full Body, Hot Stone or Indian Head Massage.
