Being an adolescent in today's world is fast paced. Considering pressures around school, work, sports, families, relationships, and social media, teens are facing more stress than ever before.
How often should students use massage therapy? During the school year, every six weeks is a general guideline. Around exam season, a 30-60 minute session once a week is beneficial to help:
relieve stress - massage can help reduce anxiety by elevating levels of endorphins and lowering cortisol
improve sleep - massage triggers the release of serotonin
boost immunity - regular massage increases white blood cell count and lowers
curb headaches - massage can help improve posture and release trigger points
