De-Stress With a Massage

The fast-paced world of today is nothing if not interesting; time seems to fly and stress levels are through the roof. With an estimated forty-three percent of all adults suffering adverse health effects from stress, the demands, frustrations and deadlines put upon people clearly take their toll. The leader in pain relief and relaxation, truMedic, are urging those feeling the results of increased stress levels to view it as their body telling them to slow down and get some much deserved R&R.

Everyone has varying amounts of stress in their lives, and sometimes, through no fault of their own, these stresses all get a bit too much and can cause symptoms such as severe pain, depression and anxiety – but to name a few – as a result of the persistent tension.

Treating stress is very much a case of trial and error, however research has suggested that massage can significantly help decrease stress hormone levels, and as a consequence, reduce the bodily effects caused by stress. Aiding in the reduction of anxiety and depression, while easing pain from backaches and headaches, relieving the symptoms of fibromyalgia, enhancing the immune system function and improve sleep quality and self-image, massage has been long championed as a way to effectively manage stress levels.

Anthony Izzo, VP of truMedic, said, “Many people could do with slowing down a little bit, however with the demands of everyday life, that is not always possible. For those who are suffering from high stress but aren’t able to reduce it, massage is an excellent way of releasing the pain and tension caused by persistently high stress levels. Going to a masseuse regularly can not only be impractical for some, but can also become extremely expensive over a period of time. At home massage devices are the ideal solution for those wanting to reap the benefits of massage, cost-effectively and in the comfort of their own home.”

A relaxing massage is one of the most enjoyable and beneficial experiences that life offers. Helping to reverse the body’s physical reaction to stress and strain, massage also helps calms and clear the mind. truMedic offers a range of TENS machines to help combat tension caused by stress in the back, while the ever-popular Instashiatsu+ mimics the traditional Japanese shiatsu massage, aiding in reduced tension and pain in the neck and shoulders.
