According to the National Institute of Mental Health, over 40 million American adults suffer from anxiety disorders.
Numerous studies show massage therapy can be an effective treatment by elevating neurotransmitters associated with lowering anxiety and decreasing hormones associated with increasing anxiety.
A growing body of research continues to support the positive impact of massage therapy including:
Massage therapy can relieve stress in psychiatric patients, those with chronic pain, cancer patients, children with illnesses, patients with generalized anxiety disorder, the elderly, and healthy adults.
Back massage given during chemotherapy significantly reduced patient anxiety and acute fatigue.
Military veterans experienced significant reductions in ratings of anxiety, worry, depression, and physical pain after massage.
