Success in Conquering Stress & Anxiety

Did anxiety and stress get the best of you in 2017? 

Stress is an inevitable part of life. It is almost impossible to take away all the stress and anxiety we may feel on a day-to-day basis. Anxiety & Stress effect cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive systems, interrupt sleep and cause muscle and body pain. This can all be overwhelming, steal our JOY and interrupt our day to day activities. BUT this year you want things to be different. Here are a few tips to help you conquer stress and anxiety in the new year!

1st- Get regular therapeutic massages.

A 60-minute massage can lower cortisol, a hormone that’s produced in response to stress, by an average of 30 percent. And when cortisol levels decline, serotonin — one of the body’s anti-pain mechanisms — increases by an average of 28 percent after receiving a massage. By lowering cortisol and increasing serotonin, you’re boosting your body’s ability to fight off pain, anxiety and feelings of sadness.

2nd- Incorporate Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils into your massage and daily use.

Anxiety and stress is a tough battle to face day in and day out, which makes having a natural solution, such as an essential oil blend, important. In a recent 2014 study by the American College of Healthcare Sciences, 58 hospice patients were given hand massages once a day for one week with an essential oil blend in 1.5 percent dilution with sweet almond oil The essential oil blend consisted of these essential oils in equal ratios of bergamot, frankincense and lavender. All patients who received the aromatherapy hand massage reported less pain and depression, concluding that aromatherapy massage with this essential oil blend is more effective for pain and depression management than massage alone. 

It is very important to make sure you are using pure therapeutic grade essential oils. For more information visit Oil Infused Adventures or you can contact me via email.

Hope this blesses you.
