Stress and the need for Massage
Stress causes adrenal glands to release the hormone cortisol. The more stress, the more cortisol is released. Too much cortisol causes weight gain, severe fatigue, high blood-pressure, acne, headache, irritability, and other problems. Therapeutic Massage helps to lower cortisol levels.
LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE & THE NEED FOR MASSAGE
Our lymphatic system fights invaders and filters out toxins and waste materials. The muscular action of lymph vessels is impeded by stress, lack of physical activity, cold temperature, dehydration, age, fatigue, and by some chemicals and food additives. This poor drainage accelerates aging and can lead to physical ailments.
