In today's hustle and bustle society we need ways to counteract the daily stresses and pressures of life. Ayurveda Treats provides simple treatments that have stood the test of time to treat stress. In Ayurveda, the physcological and physiological functions of the body are interwoven. Stress is an alteration of the body's biochemistry and is caused by an emotional experience or fear. While stress is a reaction to a fearful state the problem arises when the body does not get back to relaxation afterwards. Most of our modern day stress comes from imaginary threats to our survival. Due to these imaginary scenarios most people remain frozen in their "stess" response for a very long time. The body begins to break down with the absense of relaxation when in a constant fearful state and stress chemicals like adrenaline and cortisol remain in the body constantly. They begin to break down and weaken the immune system as they continue to pour into the body, which then makes the body less able to fight off invading pathogens. Muscles then remain tight and frozen under stress. This causes the muscles to impinge on nerves and begin to dry out and glue together (hydrogen bonding.) The body heals itself when it is relaxed. We at Ayurveda Treats believe massage to be one of the best ways to relieve stress and make it our mission to help you to relax and rejuvenate.
