Mental health issues such as such stress, feeling sad, insomnia, worry and anxiety, are now becoming more and more widespread, and are negatively affecting people of all ages. – This is due to various reasons such as our high tech lifestyle, every increasing financial pressures, pollution, and mega stress. To that end, as May is Mental Health Awareness Month, the well known holistic health company, Soothe, is urging people to look into a natural means to alleviate various mental health conditions. – This is an essential step, as if these issues are left untreated, then they can just build up, and render the condition far worse than it would have been, if it was treated earlier. This can mean that sufferers end up on pharmaceuticals. And some of these, such as sleeping pills, can mean that they are hooked for life, along with the unwanted side effects.

So What Does Soothe Offer?

Soothe, which is classed as the top worldwide on-demand massage service, offers the services of an insured, licensed, massage therapist, who also practices aromatherapy. The therapist can visit a customer in their place of work, home or hotel, so it is extremely easy to be part of this exciting natural health surge. It is present in more than 65 cities across the globe, and the therapist brings the massage couch and all the necessary equipment. Soothe’s spokesperson, Licensed Massage Therapist, Curtis Lisa, stated that: “The power of touch has an amazing effect on body and mind. Working specific reflex points in the body can stimulate the production of serotonin and dopamine, neurotransmitters that promote well-being, satisfaction and feelings of happiness, while decreasing cortisol levels, a hormone produced by the adrenal glands, which is related to stress and anxiety”.

Just imagine being able to transform your mind and body this way, by having a relaxing, highly enjoyable treatment, while at the same time, not have to go to a medic who will just write a prescription for medication? In fact, we only have to think back to ancient cultures which regularly practised this wonderful therapy that simultaneously works on two levels – the mind and the body. In fact, Ayurvedic and Chinese massage, which came about thousands of years ago, are still widely practised today. – So this form of treatment certainly has stood the test of time. And what could be better for mental health sufferers, than to experience a deep calming of the mind? And if it is necessary to combined this with other forms of treatment, such as CBD, than it makes a perfect synergy.

Benefits of Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy massage, which harnesses the miraculous powers of countless beautiful essential oils, such as lavender and frankincense, has a knock-on effect to the brain, which in turn affects our nervous system and emotional well-being. And again, this practice dates back to ancient civilizations. The immense benefits of having a treatment which can help to heal us both mentally and physically, cannot be understated, and trying is believing.
