Learn how massages reduce stress and help you feel better overall.

How Massages Reduce Stress and Anxiety

Typically, people respond positively to touch. When you have a massage, you’ll have a massage therapist that uses specialized touches, strokes, and glides to help you feel better. The different touches send different responses to the brain. One of the responses your brain receives is to stop or reduce the production of cortisol. Cortisol is the main hormone in your body responsible for stress. So, if your cortisol levels are high, you’re likely to feel more stress. But when you don’t have as much cortisol in your body, you feel less stressed and anxious, and you feel better overall.

Relaxation Massage

One of the best massage types to help reduce stress is with a relaxation massage. This massage type helps you relax as a whole and feel better overall. Aruna offers different types of relaxation massages, including:

Before your appointment begins, let Aruna know what your purpose is for seeking a massage. She’ll work to determine the best type of relaxation massage based on what you said. Honesty is important so you’ll get the most of your massage.

Cupping Therapy

Another beneficial way to relax is with cupping therapy. This type of therapy uses specialized cups that suction your skin into the cups. It helps to increase blood flow, which can help decrease any type of buildup you have in your body. Cupping therapy is a two-prong approach to helping you feel better. In the short term, you’ll feel more relaxed during the cupping therapy appointment. Meanwhile, in the long run, you’ll experience an increase in your body’s circulation, less pain, and better movement.

Sound Healing Therapy

Finally, Aruna also offers sound healing therapy. While this isn’t a massage, it’s a great way to reduce the stresses of day-to-day life. Aruna will use different sounds to help reset the chakras in your body, which helps reduce stress. Some of the different sounds and tools you may hear or use during a session include:

  • Recorded sounds from nature
  • Tuning forks to help reset the chakras
  • Tibetan singing bowls
