Anxiety and its associated disorders; Panic Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Social Phobia (Social Anxiety Disorder), Specific Phobias and General Anxiety Disorder, are generally associated with Mental Health Illnesses and are usually treated with Psychotherapy and Medication. 

Anxiety is an unrealistic and over-reactive feeling of fear, apprehension, worry, and uneasiness, to a danger, stress, or future uncertainty. It is often accompanied by restlessness, fatigue, problems in concentration, and muscular tension.

Man Suffering from Anxiety
Woman Suffering from Anxiety For many people, Anxiety is a daily reality!  We live in a fast pace world filled with a lot of Stress and Hardship.  Our Jobs, the Economy, our Families/Spouses, Injuries and Illnesses….can all potentially lead to Anxiety. 
Based on facts compiled at Harvard University, an ability to reduce anxiety translates to a capacity for improving some of our culture’s most widespread physiological ailments, as more irrefutable evidence links anxiety disorders to arthritic, heart, respiratory and digestive diseases. 

One of the greatest benefits of Swedish Massage, and the one most over looked, is its ability to relieve and prevent Anxiety.
Because Anxiety is often the result of repressed or suppressed feelings and emotions, Massage Therapy is helpful by being one of the best ways to harmonize Body, Mind and Spirit, aiding the recipient to connect with the deeper feelings that lead to anxiety.
Researchers at Duke University and the Miami School of Medicine found that Massage reduces the biochemical levels of Cortisol and Norepinephrine, associated with the high Stress that can lead to Anxiety.  While at the same time Massage increases levels of Oxytocin and Serotonin, related to feelings of Love and Well-Being.
