In the era of technology and instant access everything, switching off seems like an increasingly impossible task however, it is probably one of those things that should be higher up on our list of priorities. For both your physical and mental health, it is imperative to take time for you – to release your mind and renew your energy, especially in an area as hectic as North London.
Massages are a proven effective method to alleviate stress and to help restore and renew depleted energy levels and can have a significant impact on avoiding burn-out, an all too common problem in a modern society.
If left too long to fester, stress can have dramatic implications on your health and lead to burn-out so it’s always better to be proactive when it comes to your health, particularly your mental health. Some signs that you’re headed for burn-out and need to take action (by booking your North London mobile massage) include:
- You’re tired all the time
- You lack motivation
- You’re frustrated, emotional or cynical
- You’re finding it hard to concentrate
- Your job performance is slipping
- Your immune system is weakened
- You’re not taking care of yourself
Without even delving into the many studies that show the efficacy of massage therapy as a stress reliever, it’s also just common sense that a massage can be one of the best ways to unwind. Think about it – it’s 30 minutes, one hour or longer where you cannot do anything else. Your head is usually in a hole or face down so you can’t look at your phone, can’t answer emails, can’t prepare grocery shopping lists – all you have to do is switch off your phone and your mind and completely succumb to the experience and you’ll leave feeling on a high, motivated and ready to do better work than ever before.
Massage therapy offsets some of the adverse effects of stress such as fatigue, lack of motivation, physical health problems and concentration and helps to:
- Promote deeper sleep
- Rebalance hormones
- Shift your thoughts away from everyday worries
- Alleviate physical pain
- Loosen muscle tension
- Restore normal circulation
- Improve immune system
You don’t even need to worry about planning to leave at a certain time to get to your treatment because our North London mobile massage therapists will meet you where is convenient for you and will always fall into your schedule.
