Muscle Tension Relief - Mornington
Are you finding you wake up with Muscle Tension most days? Or are you just doing your day to day life and finding that you have a lot of built up tension?
Regardless of your answer it happens, it's not the end of the world although, it does not feel pleasant. It can range from things like neck pain, muscle soreness, lower back pain, hip pain, shoulder cramps and so on. This is due to a few things that we will go into detail below.
When we have some kind of tension or soreness it can affect our life in quite a large way, this can affect the way we communicate, the stress levels throughout the day, the way we think and a multitude of others things. The good thing is that you can do a few things at home to help relieve any stress or pains, although sometimes we can't get those spots the way someone who is trained in the chiropractic area can! So when you are looking for professional work and some of the best practices in Mornington, Mount Eliza, and Mount Martha, Spinecare Myotherapy is here to help!
When you are faced with a stressful or sudden event, such as fearing a bus is about to hit you. ( but doesn't. ) You can actually feel the stress that was placed within the body at that time, the muscle tightens, you take a deep breath, your heart feels like it is going to beat out of your chest and chances are you may sweat a little bit. With these situations, your body will eventually return back to its calm and relaxed state!
Although this is an occurrence that happens, the main occurrence we find is other stressful factors such as worrying about health or finances, feeling stuck in a job that we don't like or marriage, or fearing something bad may happen.
What the body does during this period is quite fascinating as it keeps itself on alert!
This takes a massive toll out on you, the levels of stress hormones increase and the muscles remain in a constant state of tension! All due to how you FEEL, rather than external factors!
Easier said than done I know, although you need to incorporate relaxing exercises that calm your mind, once your mind is calm and relaxed your body will follow! This will reduce stress hormones in your blood, relaxing your muscles and increases your sense of well-being! Some simple things to implement:
Breathe deeply, so that your abdomen expands and contracts like a balloon with each breath.
Breathe slowly and deeply, close your eyes and imagine yourself sitting in the most comfortable position, chair or field of flowers you can think of
Change the way you think about the pain you are feeling, talk to yourself and let yourself know everything will be okay
This isn't something that you can master or accomplish in one day, and for some not even in a week, although we know that anyone that puts their mind to something like this, will eventually achieve the results they are ultimately looking for.
When something comes up that is stressful, just think about how you can take the information and process it slowly with actionable steps, doing this will help your body, mind, and muscles not tense up due to stress.
