Stress results in tense neck and shoulder muscles, leading to stiffness, headaches and
even more stress. You can stop the cycle with a 15-minute Hellerwork self-massage. Do the
massage every day, even if you're not feeling stressed. This is a good preventive measure.
Massage helps to relax the mind, body and spirit, providing time and space for self,
and a feeling of peace, calm and well being. It allows the nervous system to normalize
itself, and may reduce many stress-related conditions, such as palpitations, negative
emotional feelings and raised blood pressure.
