Who does not need a little relaxation from time to time? It is said that stress is generating 80% of diseases. Massage has always been a good way to reduce stress, but we’ll see the first 5 parts of your body where massage will guarantee a relaxed state and optimal relaxation.

1. Toe. Foot massage is ultra relaxing for many people. Hundreds of nerve endings beneath our feet, so a form of massage was created specifically for the feet. Reflexology is based on the idea that the body is divided into ten zones all ending on the feet and hands. These zones correspond to different organs of the body. By massaging these areas on foot in a specific order, it can affect other parts of the body within that zone.

2. Hands. These two appendices are the region most workers in our body. Everything in this world requires the work of our hands. On your next massage requested that we open and relax the palms. This will be especially beneficial for those with manual work and who have contracted finger flexion. Over time, muscles present in the palms of the hands may shrink when subjected to repetitive work. It’s always good to stretch those muscles hypertonic and hand massage can prove to be surprisingly relaxing.

3. Neck. A lot of muscle covers the anterior neck, lateral and posterior. This area can hold more stress and tension than you can imagine. The lateral, or side of the neck is massaged as often as the back or posterior neck. The area most excluded, usually because of uneducated fingers, is the anterior or front of the neck. Several therapists have learned that it was better to avoid this area as it passes through the arteries and nerves. Find a therapist who masters this area, because the sterno-mastoid and scalene muscles are the anterior neck which, when relaxed, can cure headaches, thoracic outlet syndrome and numbness in the arms or fingers. The rear and side of the neck are equally important and should not be excluded. On the back of the neck are the suboccipital muscles are primarily responsible for tension headaches (a type of headache often chronic).

4. Scalp. The scalp is probably the most neglected in terms of stress. The three major muscles of the scalp muscles are temporal, frontal and occipital. Muscle massage can alleviate temporal and occipital headache. The forehead muscle is most active on your forehead and massage this part is a true sedative for the nervous system. Try to massage your scalp with your fingertips with sufficient pressure to move the skin over the underlying bone.

5. The Face. Did you know that the face alone has thirty pairs of muscles? Those who make us smile, frown, squint, etc. moving lips. There is also some pressure points sinus and the powerful of the masticatory muscle (or muscles of mastication) the masseter. This is the strongest muscle of our body relative to its size. During periods of stress, when you clench your teeth, the masseter contracts. When you are late or stuck in traffic, notice how your jaw tightens. During a massage, it is amazing how this muscle may be tender in some people. It is located on the lateral and upper cheek, it allows us to open and close the mouth. The pain of the TMJ or Temporo Mandibular Joint can be cured by massaging the muscle and some others. Two pressure points sinus located at the base of the nose and just below cheekbones. The next time your sinuses bother you, try pressing, holding and release these points a dozen times. You can also try a circular massage on the temples when you have a headache.

We all experience some degree of stress in our lives, this is normal is the ability you have to manage the stress that shows how much you are aware of your body’s needs.
