More Energy and Stamina with Bodywork

More Energy and Stamina with Bodywork

In a fast-paced world like ours, everyone is chronically exhausted. People drink caffeine like water and are constantly bombarded by incoming messages that dredge down their minds with worry and their bodies with fatigue. Tiredness leads to decreased stamina and performance, making life even more challenging.

While we can’t magically make sleep fit into your schedule, or make your phone stop ringing every three minutes, we can offer an alternative –Bodywork. Massage to ease away the aches and pains from your physical body and Energy work to help stabilize hormones, calm the mind and realign chakras and other energy systems in and around the body.

Here are 3 ways bodywork can help you get back your energy and stamina:

Increased circulation

People who have poor circulation, tend to complain about fatigue a great deal. Whatever their cause of low circulation, their muscles and bodies aren’t receiving enough oxygen. Oxygen is a key player in energy and stamina. Massage stimulates the body and supports blood flow to increase oxygen’s movement throughout the body. In-turn, you’ll feel more energetic.

Reduce anxiety

We carry anxiety and stress around on our shoulders constantly. A fast-paced, technologically savvy life like here in Boulder, is a stressful one. So many things are going on at once and the window of time in which to complete needed tasks, seems to get smaller and smaller. Sound familiar? Anxiety can manifest itself in an array of ways. It can cause body pain because when we’re stressed, we tend to tense up. It can keep you from sleeping because your mind is constantly racing and worrying.

Massage can target those areas where you carry the most tension. Those places usually include your shoulders, along your neck and at the base of your skull. Massage can also help with your overall anxiety as it has been proven to help your mind release serotonin and oxytocin. These chemicals are your body’s natural “feel good” meds. Energy work will help further calming your mind and assisting your body to heal itself.

Get a better night’s sleep

The obvious reason for people being tired, and without stamina, is a lack of sleep. However, it’s not just about the amount of sleep. It’s also about the quality of sleep as well. With all of the ongoing stimulus, and the aches and pains from a hectic life, it’s hard to relax and let go.

Massage combined with energy work will put you into a relaxed state, one you may have forgotten existed. It can also alleviate aches and pains from overwork. This may help you fall asleep faster and improve sleep quality. People who can relax at bedtime are less likely to toss and turn which leads to a more fulfilling night’s sleep.

Additional ways to achieve a better night’s sleep include:

1) not engaging in electronics right before bed, as this stimulates your mind

2) enjoying a soothing warm bath before laying down, utilizing epsom salts mixed with essential oils for optimum relaxation.
