How Massage Therapy Can Help Manage Stress?

Stress is a mental condition that can be triggered by various factors like personal problems and diseases. Ayurvedic unlike many conventional treatments, has natural treatments and as such is free from side effects. There are multiple treatments in Ayurveda that can be used to treat stress, they are:

  1. Exercise: Exercising helps in releasing endorphins (feel good hormones) in the body. Exercises like running and swimming can help in treating stress as well as aid in burning calories and keep your weight levels in check. Exercise also helps in boosting your alertness and concentration and thus boosting your overall mental health.
  2. DietInclude plenty of vegetables and fruits in your diet to increase your intake of vitamins and antioxidants. Avoid eating non vegetarian foods as they can lead to accumulation of toxins in the body and cause problems. Include foods like nuts and dark chocolate as they are known as mood boosters. These foods also promote feelings of satiety.
  3. Practice relaxation techniques: You can practice relaxation techniques like meditation, which helps in calming the mind. Basic meditative techniques like focusing on your breath and practicing mindfulness are very beneficial. They also help you in de-stressing and improving your focus.
  4. Herbs: You may also include herbs like brahmi that has properties which can reduce stress levels in your body. It can also help in controlling anxiety and stress. It also provides the body with antioxidants that are good for the body as they help in controlling the free radical damage. Ashwagandha is yet another herb that helps in limiting levels of stress and fatigue in the body. It also improves the immune function in the body which means that you will be less prone to diseases.
  5. Massage therapy: You may opt for massage therapy to reduce stress levels in the body. Use a concoction of various medicated oils to massage your head and body. Massage therapy can improve blood circulation in the body and lead to lower levels of stress.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

I was a heavy smoker. And I used to smoke average 6 cigarettes daily. From last one month I haven't smoked .i know disadvantages of smoking. But sometimes it seems to me that I need cigarette.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

I feel very depressed due to some personal problem. And always worry about his health and all time feel very stressed...
Dear Lybrate user. The problem you have described is the story of every other person in 20s and 30s today. The world around us has drastically changed since the industrial revolution and more so after the technology boom in 21st century. Today there is no limits to earn but also a huge competition to face. We have created a virtual reality of targets around ourselves and we live every moment to fulfill them. We create goals for every day, every week, every month, every year and justify them by thinking that we want our future secure and happy. But when we achieve the goal we instead of enjoying it and living our present, set another goal to achieve. This is how we forget to live in our present and get stressed out. But I feel that there is something more to your problem which is bothering you and you also quoted that you feel depressed. My suggestion would be to have a detailed interview with a psychiatrist so that a good individualised management plan can be formulated for you. If not possible than you may contact me on Lybrate for detailed evaluation by chat or audio call and I may prescribe you medications. Also in your case Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (counselling) will be helpful. Hoping for your best. Take care.

How can I care my body. And how can I gain weight to be a strong. And what can I do for increase my memory?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Gaining weight is not healthy as obesity is a problem and for memory Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts (" leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a" morning person" or" evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

I just married 2 months back and my wife on 2nd day started crying and telling me you are avoiding me if you are not interested you should have not married. For small small things she will get angry and she won't understand the situation. Yesterday she was asking any good news, I told to my wife we have married just 2 months back and you are asking good news in short period. I have done intercourse but it will take time. Please give me good answer for this so that I can show to my wife she won't believe what I tell? Please advise.

Hello your wife wants you attention from you . Please give more important to her . Bcoz she is newly married she feels alone . Go for movie , go for dinner , give some gifts every week . Like flowers, dresses, saree, perfumes. Feel her she is special for u. Talk her with proper manner , she is only asking any good news . And you r giving a lecture about marriage duration. Its wrong . U can say her you r my good news . U came in life and my life is now beautiful . Becoz of you . If she making lunch dinner tell her you cook nice . 1.Talk to her respectfully without demeaning her or hurting her feelings. 2. Find something that makes you laugh together. 3. Put your arms around her when she needs comfort, holding her silently. 4.Surprise her by doing something you think she would want done before she asks. 5. Show interest in that which she values as important in her life. 6.Be a good listener. Show her you value what she says. 7.Plan a mini-honeymoon, where the two of you can spend quality time together. 8.Go shopping with her and don’t sigh or look at what time it is even once. 9.Be especially helpful when she is not feeling well. 10.When she asks how your day went, don’t just say “fine” —actually give her details. 11. Don’t embarrass her by arguing with her in front of others. 12. Make eye contact when she is talking to you and when you are talking with her. 13.Surprise her from time-to-time with a card and flowers or a little gift. 14.Give her your undivided attention when she wants to talk. 15.Sit close to her —even when you are just watching television. 16.Do not making plans without her agreeing with them 16. Ask her and then listen to what makes her fearful and insecure (without judging) 17. Be careful to choose your words, especially when angry. 18.Hold her close and verbally express your love when she is hurt or discouraged. 19. Allow her to express herself freely, without fear of being called illogical or dumb. 20. Fix dinner for her sometimes. 21. Tell her (and show her) you love her often. 22.Don’t ignore the small things that bother her and let them build into bigger issues. 23.Call, email or text her when you’re apart so she knows you are thinking of her. 24.Show her affection without sexual intentions. Take care of her.

I am a 22 year old female. My father has schizophrenia. And I'm facing some issues. I've isolated myself. Also in the verge of losing my job. I have suicidal thoughts, but haven't thought of doing anything. I have mood swings. I am normal sometimes but there are times I don't even want to talk or eat or do anything. Most of time I keep day dreaming and lose hold of reality. I don't think about my future or any responsibilities. I stay in my room for almost the whole day. I'm staying at my parent's, but still I don't feel like talking to them. I tried to check if I carry my father's illness. But I don't have any hallucinations or delusions. I've had depression for like 4 months continuously but later I had depression with gaps. Can you help me analyse what is this?

You need to be extremely careful with a genetic endowment for mental illness. It is possible for you to get other psychotic conditions too. YOu must never stay in stress for too long: it can precipitate any predisposition easily. Ideally, you must go out and socialize but you need to begin at home. You could do with some counseling help too. Do regular exercise, sleep well, eat healthily and above all get some education about emotions and remain balanced emotionally always. Equip yourself with healthy techniques and skills to be fit always. Keep the counseling going for a long time until you feel confident that you can handle all kinds of contingencies.

How can I remove my smoking habit? I am feeling torture by my own smoking habits. I do not want to do smoke. Per day I take approx 8 cigarette. please help me dear Doctor to remove smoking habits.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Hello lybrate user. Yes definitely you can quit smoking completely. Smoking cigarettes for long time is nicotine addiction and it gets difficult to quit smoking. Usually people start smoking with friends just for experimentation and later for enjoyment and still later to relieve stress in life, but what they forget is that gradually smoking becomes a compulsion in their life and then whenever a stressful situation arises they smoke. Even the previously pleasure giving food items or activities are no more pleasurable to the same extent. You start spending more and more time in obtaining and enjoying smoking cigarettes. We have medications which decreases craving and helps in quitting smoking completely. Along with medications making simple changes in lifestyle and bringing about stress management in life can have miraculous effects in quitting smoking addiction. I hope that you quit smoking in the near future and resume a healthy life. For help feel free to contact.
