Effects of Stress on the body

| by , under Wellness

Its no secret that when you are feeling stressed, it has a detrimental effect on your mind, but unresolved stress can also lead to problems with your body. As humans, we are designed to encounter stressful situations, and use the hormones released during this process to help us out of the situation. As humans have evolved though, so have our problems. Now on a day to day basis people are stressed by work, money, children, family and more. Finding time to unwind can have a serious health benefit to those suffering from chronic stress.

                Stress that is never dealt with can lead to what is called distress. Distress is a negative reaction to stress and can lead to physical symptoms such as headaches, elevated blood pressure, upset stomach, insomnia and more. Research also shows that unhandled stress can worsen existing medical issues in a person. Woodhouse offers a variety of different spa services to help you to relieve your stress, and ultimately increase your quality of life.

                Those who suffer from chronic stress often times turn to substance abuse as a way of coping. Stress is only multiplied when coupled with drug use or alcohol. Instead of relieving the body like one would think, use of these substances will actually put the body in an overall higher state of stress and cause more problems, including those detrimental to your health. Nearly 45% of adults suffer from health problems relating to stress. Stress plays a huge roll in headaches, high blood pressure, heart problems, skin conditions, diabetes, and countless other health problems.

                A trip to the spa should not be something that is done once a year as a birthday present, in order to maintain a healthy body and mind one must relieve stress on a regular basis. Woodhouse Day Spa provides a serene environment with one on one time spent on each client to help relieve their individual stresses through massage and body treatments. It's no secret that living a relaxing, stress free life can greatly extend your lively years. This isn't always possible in today's society of hectic business and family life. This is the main reason why making time to relax at the spa is crucial to maintaining a healthy happy life. The services offered at Woodhouse will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed, ready to take on the world.
