New Year New You…
Using Massage therapy and Calospa to help rid you of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), post Holiday blues and any new goals you have set for 2015!
So what is SAD?
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons — SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. If you’re like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months; sapping your energy and making you feel moody.
Holliday blues, holiday depression, or post-Christmas blues, these commonly used terms depict the mental distress occurring after the winter holidays and festival season.
Massage can Help!!
It is the position of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) that massage therapy can be effective in reducing the symptoms of depression. Most massage therapist can provide the kind of massage you will need to help with depression, anger, anxiety and stress relief. Moderate pressure is the key factor for massage therapy to be effective. Any type of massage therapist who uses moderate pressure should be able to help with mood management. Benefits of massage go beyond stress relief, for as little as 15 minutes may offer relief from depression, anger, and anxiety.
