It has been a while since my last blog so thought I'd get one underway and share the topic for Massage New Zealand Awareness Week coming up from 4th-10th August, Anxiety & Stress.
Stress is good. It keeps us motivated, active and gets us out of bed in the morning but learn to know the early warning signs when your optimal performance peak starts to slide downhill and stress becomes 'distress' causing fatigue, a lowered immune system, anxiety and depression.
Do the simple Quizz: How stressed are you? below then check out the valuable information and ways to reduce stress & anxiety on the MNZ leaflet. Share it around friends, family & work collegues. One single session of massage or a series of treatments has been proven in research studies to have a huge impact on reducing cortisol levels and improving health.
