Pouring oil on troubled water - Massage for stress management

 Getting a massage as part of a stress management plan.

Famously Sir Alex Ferguson suggested Tony Blair take a masseur on his political tour bus to manage stress.



When we experience stress we can develop a wide variety of physical, psychological and behavioural symptoms.  These symptoms are not a sign of disease because stress is not a disease; they are brought about by the bodys Fear-Fight-Flight Response, which is designed to give us extra energy and speed to cope with the threat.  

Fight gives rise to symptoms of anger, Fear to panic.

 Constant emotional, physical or mental stress,
excessive intake of alcohol (more than
one glass of wine per day),
and even minor amounts of sugars and refined carbohy-
drates can lead to insulin resistance, which
in turn can increase levels of cortisol.
