Research confirms that massage therapy helps to lower blood pressure and facilitates the release of those ‘feel good’ hormones that help to relieve depression and anxiety. Massage helps to relax muscles
made tense from anxiety and it can help to alleviate insomnia too.
University of Miami researches studied 37 breast cancer patients who got regular massage therapy for five weeks. The women reported feeling less depressed and they were also less tired. A University of South Florida study found that patients with high blood pressure patients who received a 10-minute massage three times a week lowered their blood pressure readings by 11 points.
You can augment your treatment of depression and anxiety through massage with aromatherapy. Many essential oils like lavender and chamomile have relaxing, mood-lifting properties. You can add some essential oil to your diffuser to scent the room or sprinkle a couple of drops in a bowl of water under the massage table.
You can also add a couple of drops to your laundry so that your linens are softly scented. It’s important to check with your client that they have no allergies. Essential oils are very strong and should not be used unless the massage therapist is qualified to do so.
