The Stress Response
When put under physical/mental stress the body produces hormones adrenaline and noradrenaline to increase heart rate and blood pressure to cope with the situation. If this stressful situation goes unresolved for over 15 minutes, the ‘stress hormone’ cortisol is produced to over-ride the inhibitory effects of adrenal release to maintain the stress response. Elevated cortisol levels can lead to disrupted sleep patterns, immunity issues, weight issues, and cardiovascular and gastrointestinal problems. Massage encourages vasodilation or peripheral vessels, reducing blood pressure. This off-sets the effects of the adrenal response and alters the feedback loop controlling cortisol release, therefore inhibiting the stress response and regaining homeostatic balance.
