Massage for Stress and Anxiety

Massage is an effective method of relieving stress and anxiety and is renowned for its therapeutic effects - especially when combined with aromatherapy oils.  With stress and anxiety on the rise, people are looking for non-medicinal alternatives to relieve their symptoms.  Massage is one such therapy that has proven effective for a range of conditions and is well worth exploring.

The benefits of massage include:

  • Diminished muscle tension
  • Enhanced circulation
  • Reduction in the production of stress hormones
  • Enhanced mental alertness
  • Reduction in nervous tension, anxiety and depression 

Stress and Anxiety

Stress can have detrimental long term effects on the health of an individual, with stress-induced illnesses on the rise.  A range of illnesses and conditions have been attributed to stress, including eczema, migraine, digestive complaints, high blood pressure, heart disease, back-ache, muscular pain and depression. Stress can come from a number of sources, including the workplace, personal relationships and family life.   Anxiety is closely related and is characterised by faster breathing, sweating, phobias and even panic attacks.

How can Massage Help Stress and Anxiety?

One of the primary goals of massage is relaxation, so the calm it brings to stress and anxiety sufferers can only be beneficial.  Using a qualified and experienced massage therapist is essential to realising the benefits of massage.  The type of massage you have should also be matched to the condition you are suffering from.
