Massage Therapy Treats Depression

Massage Therapy Treats Depression

As summer melts into fall, and the days seem darker and colder, many of us experience the winter blues. Getting less exercise and feeling depressed and lethargic are signs that seasonal depression has taken its hold. Recent studies have suggested that by integrating massage therapy into the fall months as winter approaches is a good way to improve mood and reset our bodies’ circadian rhythms—all leading to more energy, better sleep, and uplifted spirits.

The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) says massage therapy is an effective technique to balance common seasonal challenges related to stress, anxiety, and depression. The Soma Institute is training students to make a difference this season, using natural methods to treat people’s painful ailments—whether that be depression, stress, and anxiety, or physical ailments like overworked muscles and injuries.

Soma offers an 11 and 15 month Clinical Massage Therapy program giving students all the tools they need to have a successful and rewarding career in massage therapy. Massage therapy is a career in helping others and spreading health and wellness among your clients.

If you’re interested in spreading wellness this winter season, and have dreamed of a career in massage therapy, call The Soma Institute in Chicago, Illinois to find out more. To speak to a knowledgeable Admissions Representative, give us a call at 1-800-694-5314.
