San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 06, 2012
SF Custom Chiropractic, a San Francisco based chiropractic practice, today announced it will be celebrating National Relaxation Day by providing current patients with a 15 minute chair massage as well as offering friends and family a complimentary chiropractic examination and treatment through the month of August. In today’s fast paced society, it can be challenging for Americans to juggle between work and personal lives. According to the American Psychological Association, approximately 77% of Americans experience physical symptoms caused by stress. Stress can be developed from factors such as your job, money, relationship with others and all the challenges and difficulties confronted on a daily basis. Overtime, excessive stress can result in physical and psychological symptoms such as fatigue, muscle tension, irritability, and a lack of energy or insomnia. To help promote leisure and wellness activities, August 15 has been designated as National Relaxation Day.
“Many Americans, especially those working in the Financial District of San Francisco, are often confined to their desk and are pressured to meet deadlines. Due to the combination of stress and the amount of time spent on the computer, it is of no surprise that many people report feeling muscle tightness in their shoulders and neck,” said Dr. Adam Jacobs of SF Custom Chiropractic. ”Chiropractic care and massage therapy can help ease muscle tension and stress which is why we are excited to celebrate National Relaxation Day with our existing patients while also welcoming friends and family who are potentially new to chiropractic care and its stress relieving benefits.”
Prior to treatment, patients from SF Chiropractic are given a 5-10 minute warm up massage to help release tension in the muscles and relieve stress. Once the muscles are loosened up, patients can receive a chiropractic adjustment and active release technique to ensure the body is in correct alignment. In addition to chiropractic care and massage therapy, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle consisting of proper diet, exercise and sleep to help maintain stress levels. In 2011, the American Psychological Association released a study where the presence of a best friend can help reduce stress or cortisol levels.
