Massage for Anxiety and Depression

Massage for Anxiety and Depression

Good news for advocates of alternative, holistic approaches to health care: massage therapy has been documented to show markedly improved results in patients dealing with anxiety, depression, and other health issues. According to The American Massage Therapy Association, or AMTA, “…participants who received massage therapy reported feeling less anxious and less depressed by the end of the 12-week study.”

Besides reducing anxiety and depression, massage works to regulate mood, sleep, and appetite by promoting increased levels of serotonin in the body. With all of this positive news for those wishing to pursue non-drug related therapies, massage therapy has become more and more considered a part of the healthcare industry.

If you’ve considered a career helping others heal, and in promoting wellness, this is a good time to embark on a career in massage therapy. The Soma Institute in Chicago, Illinois has opened its February 2016 enrollment for the 11 & 15-month Clinical Massage Therapy Program. Don’t wait any longer to get out from behind your desk and jump into a career that will bring you joy and satisfaction.
