Everyday annoyances like heavy traffic or an overwhelming inbox—or sustained crises, such as unemployment or caring for a sick relative—can cause the body to activate the stress response constantly, which is called chronic stress. The body and brain can’t reset hormones and inflammatory chemicals to normal levels, damaging the immune system, and shrink the blood vessels, inhibiting circulation. A stressed mind and body means the heart works harder. Breathing becomes rapid and shallow, digestion slows. Nearly every body process is degraded.and making you far more likely to get sick. Stress is a main contributor to chronic disease, such as cancer, heart attacks and diabetes. Studies show stress can cause migraines, hypertension (high blood pressure), depression, some peptic ulcers, etc. If you are experiencing any type of regular stress then regular massage is essential.
