Changing The Way You Think About Massage
How Massage Therapy Can Help Ease
Anxiety and Panic Disorder Symptoms
Massage therapy can help the body relax, which in turn can help one let go of anxious and fearful thoughts. Massage can relieve muscle pain and tension, improve circulation, and increase flexibility. As a relaxation technique, massage therapy can work to manage the fight-or-flight response, or stress reaction, that is typically overactive among people with anxiety disorders.
The fight-or-flight reaction is responsible for causing fearful thoughts and reactions that often far outweigh any actual threat in the environment. For example, people with agoraphobia often fear having a panic attack in a large crowd or confined areas where it would feel embarrassing or difficult to escape.
The fight-or-flight reaction typically leads to uncomfortable physical symptoms, such as shortness of breath, accelerated heart rate, excessive sweating, and chest pain. Massage therapy can have an opposing effect on the body by eliciting the relaxation response, reducing tension, lowering heart rate, and generally making a person feel calmer.
Anxiety and Depression
Massage for wellness can help those who suffer from mental health issues. For example, a study found that massage lowered the stress hormone cortisol in patients suffering from anxiety by 53 percent, according to the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). Research has also found the natural treatment increases serotonin and dopamine, which helps those experiencing depression.
How massage can help scoliosis:
- Cranial-sacral therapy: By gently mobilizing restricted tissue around and within the spinal column, cranial-sacral therapy helps balance the spine and improve the patient’s ability to function.
- Deep tissue massage: Deep tissue work, assisted stretching and neuromuscular therapy all help the spine relax by increasing blood flow and elongating tightened areas, which can help relieve muscular pain.

What is float therapy? Floating, also known as sensory deprivation is a form of relaxation therapy. The tank is filled with 11″ of water heated to 94°, and 1,200+ pounds of Epsom salt. Your body floats effortlessly on top of the water… Floating helps relieve pain and inflammation in the body, relaxes the mind, and helps stimulate creativity.

Floating is Scientifically Proven to Help with Anxiety and Stress
