    A massage can be one of the best solutions for relieving stress. When you are stressed out your muscles tense up and form knots. These knots are sore and uncomfortable and they will only get bigger if you continue to stress. The knots and stress can also be the culprit of headaches and insomnia.

During massage therapy the knots will be worked out and loosened, this will relieve the pressure that is causing headaches and continued stress. It will also help you remain stress-free because it will relax you. Because it relaxes you, you will then also be able to sleep easier and more relaxed, treating insomnia.
