Importance of Using Insurance Coverage for Your Massage Therapy Services In December, we always see an increase in client bookings as everyone races to use up massage benefit dollars before year end.  Instead of doing this we would rather see our clients utilizing health benefits throughout the year to use them to your advantage.  One of the biggest reasons clients visit us is down to feeling “stressed”.

Stress is defined as the body’s non specific response to any demand made upon it. Stress is not a disease, but did you know that it can contribute to ill health?  61-85% of physician visits are because of stress-related symptoms. Stress has been known to contribute to gastroesophogeal reflux disease, allergies, weight gain, headaches and migraines, heart disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and so many other illnesses that are not only present in adults, but are also starting to impact the younger generation.

No matter where you look these days, everyone is busy. Even at a young age, children are flung into a world full of electronic devices, gadgets, new inventions and sadly their parents are no different.  From busy jobs, taking on extra responsibilities, attending school to achieve new skills or commitments to family.  Everyone these days is dealing with “stress” in some shape or form.

We all talk about stress, but we do not always understand about what it is. This is because stress comes from bad and good things that happen in life. If we did not feel any stress, we wouldn’t be alive!  However, stress can start being a problem when we are not sure how to handle an event or a situation. Then worry sets in, and we feel “stressed.”

It appears that stress management is something everyone needs help with. In a Statistics Canada Survey completed in 2010, slightly more than 1 in 4 Canadian workers described their day-to-day lives as “highly stressful”, according to the General Social Survey (GSS). Mental health problems alone are estimated to cost employers about $20 billion annually and account for over three-quarters of short-term disability claims in Canada.

It is also interesting to note that the demographic most stressed in this study were women who attributed their stresses to a variety of issues including isolation, relationship problems, pressures to fulfill obligations and responsibilities, and general unspecified worry and anxiety.

Stress levels are on the rise, which means clients are seeking out massage to help them tackle this problem. Massage therapy has been proven to lower stress levels through decreasing the sympathetic nervous system and helping relax (tight) hypertonic muscles, which is something most of us are in need of on a regular basis.

We know you are busy, but try and take the time for yourself just once a month or every other month to decompress and come visit us for a 60 minute, 90 minute or even 2 hour massage! Many clients don’t even use their health benefits at all (we know…shocking!). By taking the time for yourself, you will reduce stress levels and prevent other illnesses and diseases from occurring in the body.
