Treating Anxiety Through Massage

Treating Anxiety Through Massage

Elements Massage Central Scottsdale

While often thought of as the ultimate experience in relaxation, massage is so much more than that. As a stress reliever, it also has numerous positive health impacts on things like sciatica pain, heart disease, sleep issues, and anxiety.

About GAD
More than 6.8 million Americans suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. Most often, individuals categorized with this disorder experience persistent and excessive worry on a range of topics that include health, family, work, or other issues. The exact cause of GAD is unknown at this time but research suggests that it is impacted by things like family, background, life experiences, and stress levels.

Treatment Options
Many individuals treat anxiety through cognitive behavioral therapy, medications, yoga, acupuncture, or massage. As a non-pharmacological and non-invasive approach, massage is an excellent way to reduce the body’s production of the stress hormone, cortisol. This decrease can help reduce other symptoms of anxiety and is a great method of nurturing the mind and body in a holistic fashion.

Stress Management Tactics

In addition to finding an approach that works, taking other measures to manage the stress of life’s day-to-day is smart since stress is a lifelong battle. Several of the best ways we’ve found to reduce stress is to eat a healthy diet, get regular exercise, and avoid ingesting high amounts of caffeine.

At Elements Massage Central Scottsdale, our team is here to help you find the best way to treat your anxiety. As always, talk to your doctor about the right approach to optimize your health and wellness.
