Such factors can be imagined like worrying about future or real like fanatical problems. It is not the factor itself that is damaging but the response to it. Stress puts all the systems on the red alert, especially the nervous system which tries to locate the danger, whether real or not, in order to send the signal to brain. This activity causes symptoms such as:

  • Churning stomach or ‘butterflies’
  • Racing heart or palpitation
  • Diarrhoea or constipation
  • Loss of appetite
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Insomnia or sleeplessness
  • Sweating

Stress is any factor which affects physical or mental well-being. When a person is stressed, blood vessels contracts and the heart beat faster- pumping blood more quickly. Excessive and unresolved stress can lead to high blood pressure, coronary thrombosis and heart attacks. Its effects are also excessive muscle tension, muscles contract and body remains tense and cannot relax what leads to muscle pain, especially in the back and neck, and also shuts down digestive function.

Massage is extremely effective for treating stress because it stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system which slows down the action of some internal organs, particularly the heart. Massage is used over the whole surface of the body but is particularly beneficial for the circulation, skin, muscles and joints.
