Our generation is dealing with stress and anxiety more then ever. In Calgary, with the oil and gas industry down and companies laying off employees, Calgarians are more prone to health risk such as high blood pressure, anxiety, low immune system, depression and sleep issues. Most people assume getting help or a prescription from a medical doctor is the only way to cure stress. However, one of the most effective way to overcome stressful times is making time for yourself. Self care is the number one cure for fighting against life situations.
Taking a deep breath, going for a walk, mediation are some great ways to start feeling better. One more commonly avoided an overlooked treatment is Massage Therapy.

Massage techniques are not designed to force the body of the client to change; they are designed to re-educate the client’s body to naturally relax, unwind, rest and assume its proper alignment. Massage Therapy has been around for over 5000 years, before any anti depressants or any other modern medications. One of the most common form of Massage therapy is Relaxation Massage, If you work a high-stress job and feel tired, drained and your body feels weak you are probably suffering from stress.
Introducing a Relaxation Massage
Introducing a relaxation massage into your daily life can help improve sleep, give you more energy, provide better resistance to illness, give you better concentration and more patience. Massage therapy can help increase the production of endorphins, your body’s natural “feel good” chemical.
Serotonin and dopamine are also released through massage, and the result is a feeling of calm relaxation that makes chronic or habitual as well as acute or short-term stress much easier to overcome. Leela Eco Spa has the best Registered Massage therapists in Calgary.
