It’s the time of year when we naturally start worrying. Whether it’s upcoming holiday stressors, financial matters in our homes and businesses, beginning to take personal stock of the year, or just the usual family-house-work matters that always prey upon us, it seems like these are the months where anxiety and worry begin to set in. Combine that with the changes in light and changes in time, and you have a recipe for getting less sleep!
Fortunately, massage is a great solution for helping you get a little extra snooze time in. Massage naturally raises your levels of serotonin, the “feel-good” hormone. This is why massage is so effective for reducing pain. At the same time, your levels of cortisol – the “stress hormone” – drop. Together, these hormone reactions leave you with a feeling of peace and lessened stress, which naturally promotes better sleep.
As always, if you have questions about how massage (or Reiki) can help you, please call or text me at 720-432-8664 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can chat. I do free consultations, either over the phone or in person, if you’d like to find out more about how our services can help you find the health and wholeness you seek.
Be well, healthy and whole!
