Massage to Reset Your Circadian Rhythm

Massage to reset your Circadian Rhythm

Revision Massage in Monroe will help you reset your internal clock with quality deep-tissue massage therapy, relieving stress, tension, and chronic pain.

The circadian rhythm is a 24-hour cycle that impacts sleep, energy levels, and mood. It’s controlled by the brain and runs on a set schedule, although many factors can disrupt it. 

Deep tissue massage has been proven to help you get back on track with your circadian rhythm and improve your overall wellness.

The most important thing you need to know about your circadian rhythm is this: When it’s operating at its peak, you’ll feel better and be less susceptible to pain, insomnia, anxiety, and depression.

Your circadian rhythm is a 24-hour cycle controlled by your brain and affects the nervous system.

Circadian rhythm is a 24-hour cycle controlled by your brain. The hypothalamus, part of your central nervous system, regulates hormone production, body temperature, and other functions such as appetite and metabolism. It also controls your sleep-wake cycle by releasing melatonin (a hormone) into your bloodstream at night to signal that it’s bedtime.

The body’s internal clock responds to various stimuli, including light and temperature. These two factors are among the most common stimuli that can disrupt your circadian rhythm. Light is controlled by the retina, located in the back of your eye. It sends signals to your hypothalamus (a part of your brain) when it detects brightness levels or color spectrum changes during daytime hours. The hypothalamus then tells other parts of your body when it’s time for certain functions like eating or sleeping so they can occur at regular intervals throughout each day.

The circadian rhythm can be influenced by external cues such as sunlight exposure, blue light from your computer and tv, or social interaction; however, internal factors like genes or age can also influence it.

When you don’t get enough sleep or are otherwise disrupted by your circadian rhythm, it can lead to health problems like depression and anxiety and physical symptoms like fatigue and irritability. Do you have trouble getting back on track with your sleep schedule after working late nights? 

A disruption in your circadian rhythm negatively affects your health, mood, and energy levels.

A disruption in your circadian rhythm negatively affects your health, mood, and energy levels. Disruptions to the circadian rhythm can trigger sleep disorders such as insomnia and sleep apnea. Disrupted sleep patterns can also cause mood disorders like depression and anxiety.

There are many symptoms of a disrupted circadian rhythm, including

  • Increased irritability
  • Lowered concentration levels (e.g., difficulty focusing on tasks)
  • Nervousness, irritability
  • Depression
  • Lagging, tiredness
  • Changes in eating patterns
  • Cognitive functioning.

When you're not getting enough sleep, your immune system suffers, and you're more likely to get sick.

You’re probably familiar with the many physical and mental benefits of getting enough sleep. But what about when you don’t get enough? You may be surprised to learn that it can lead to various health problems, including depression, anxiety, and weight gain.

In addition to these mental symptoms, research has shown that sleep deprivation can increase your risk of developing high blood pressure or heart disease–even if you don’t have any other risk factors like smoking or being overweight. It’s also been linked to diabetes and cancer (though more research is needed).

Many factors can disrupt your circadian rhythms.

The circadian rhythm is the body’s internal clock, and many factors can disrupt it. Pregnancy and travel time zones are two common disruptions that lead to poor sleep quality.

Another common cause of circadian rhythm disturbances is sleeping with a dog or other pet in your bed–especially if you have asthma or allergies. Dogs tend to shed dander (tiny pieces of skin) all over the sheets, which can cause allergic reactions in humans who are sensitive to these allergens.*

The right kind of massage can help reset your body's internal clock by helping it relax and release tension.

Massage can help reset your body’s internal clock by helping it relax and release tension. When stressed or tense, the sympathetic nervous system is activated and sends messages to the brain that make us feel more alert, focused, and energized. This causes the body to produce cortisol (the stress hormone), which makes us awake and alert and increases blood pressure and heart rate.

If we’re feeling stressed out all day long, then this will continue into our sleep cycle at night time. We may struggle to get a good night’s rest because our bodies are still producing cortisol, even when trying to relax them by going to bed early enough. Hence, they have time before going into deep sleep mode, where dreaming occurs during REM sleep stages 3 & 4, respectively, which occur after 90 minutes without waking up during REM cycle 1&2 respectively.

Regular massage helps regulate your circadian rhythm, leading to better sleep and overall wellness.

Naturally, massage therapy eliminates toxins and reduces stress. But there’s more to it than that. Massage therapy reduces stress by decreasing cortisol – a stress hormone and increasing serotonin and dopamine – neurotransmitters that help to stabilize mood.

If you suffer from chronic pain, it can make it difficult to sleep. Pain can lead you to toss and turn at night, and make you get up frequently through the night. It may even worsen insomnia caused by other factors. Treating your pain with deep tissue massage will improve your chances of getting a good night’s sleep and breaking the negative cycle. 

Massage breaks down tense and agitated tissue in your body that can cause you to be in pain. Ongoing massage interrupts the cycle of pain your body is used to following and also stops resistant painful conditions.

Massage therapy is an effective tool for pain management in both non-injured and injured individuals. Massage therapy proves to be one of the most effective complementary and alternative therapies when it comes to pain management.

Deep tissue massage is increasingly being used as a natural way to relieve pain and reduce joint stiffness. When you have an injury or condition, blood flow and warmth is increased to the area. The release of natural opioids during a massage can have a detoxifying effect on your body by helping the immune system, and easing inflammation.

Regular massage helps regulate your circadian rhythm, leading to better sleep and overall wellness!
