Massage Therapy Treats Anxiety
Massage therapy can help reduce anxiety and stress levels by relaxing the mind and the body. Studies have found that massage lowers levels of the stress hormone cortisol up to 53 percent. The neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, which help reduce depression and anxious feelings, also increased after a massage.
Tackle anxiety by scheduling regular massages.
Massage therapy has also been found to reduce anxiety in surgery patients. One research study showed that massage therapy can significantly reduce unease, pain and tension in cardiac surgery patients. Massage can be an especially relaxing experience after the stress of surgery and other medical procedures.
