With the current economic climate, more and more professional people are resorting to DIY massage for stress relief and general relaxation according to research carried out by Jowana Information Services.

As more people are falling victim to stress - this is triggered off by not having enough sleep, over scheduling work days and not eating anti inflammatory foods like flaxseed, leafy greens, tumeric and blueberries. Not finding time to relax is also another trigger for stress – research into DIY massage therapy could point the way toward awareness programmes that improve personal health and well being.

It is interesting to note that 65% of those that had received a massage in the past five years were mainly women and 80% of these tended to thrive well under pressure rather than crumble. 75% of those that had received a massage were mainly 18 – 26 year olds. This shows that in today’s fast paced environment, young people already value the benefits of massage therapy for overall health and well being.

Not everyone has the time or money to book professional massages. So why not do it yourself? Learning how to massage yourself is necessary because you are prone to hazardous injuries from bending, twisting, stooping and other repetitive movements that involve using the same joints and muscle groups. Lost time and low productivity is just not an option to employees and employers these days.

There are certain simple massages you can do yourself. Massage is a great "pick-me-up" after a hard day of work. You can also get benefits of massage by immersing yourself in a Jacuzzi with the water doing the massaging.
Foot massage is one of the most effective and relaxing treatment that you can give yourself. DIY Foot massage or foot reflexology involves applying focused pressure to specific reflex points located in the foot to enhance health and prevent disease. Foot reflexology is based on the theory that our reflex zones and points from our feet are able to affect the function of vital organs in our entire body.
The benefits of DIY massage include:
• Feelings of relaxation, comfort,
• Reduced stress,
• The ability to cope well under pressure,
• Improved circulation,
• Improved vitality and immune function through reduced stress.
