The new year is finally upon us and millions of people from across the globe will take this opportunity to turn a “new leaf” in their lives and will begin the new year with fresh resolutions. Some will attempt to break bad habits, while others will do their best to form new behaviors.

Unfortunately, while we can do a lot to change our external surroundings, it can be difficult to deal with the stress that has been internalized within our bodies, causing discomfort and pain.

Failure to address and remedy these problems can lead to greater complications over time, increasing the tension that is held within the body.

One remedy to this is through massage therapy. Massage therapy works to alleviate the stress and tension within the body by applying gentle but targeted pressure in soothing, precise movements. This is done in order to sooth the muscles and to allow a release for the tension they may be holding. The process is both relaxing and energizing and the effects can be felt long after the initial massage is over.
