Anxiety and stress are common and costly problems afflicting American adults and are a leading reason for using complementary and alternative medical therapies, such as therapeutic massage. The scientific literature supports the use of massage to reduce symptoms of anxiety in people with a variety of conditions. Reduced anxiety symptoms have been reported in over a dozen studies of massage for a host of specific conditions such as arthritis, asthma, depression, job stress, back pain, and multiple sclerosis.
In addition to the benefits of massage in reducing anxiety in a wide variety of studies, community surveys indicate that people with complaints of muscle tension, fatigue, chronic pain, and insomnia successfully use massage to address these symptoms. Thus, massage is encouraged as an excellent, non-pharmacologic way to supplement psychotherapy for conditions that include stress, anxiety, and depression.
