Yes, studies have shown massage can help to soothe anxiety and stress. But it’s worth remembering that a massage isn’t a substitute for medical treatment if your anxiety is caused by a mental health condition, like clinical depression.
A relaxing massage has been proven to relieve stress by stimulating your parasympathetic nervous system. That’s the part of you that switches off your body’s fight or flight response, bringing levels of stress hormones, like cortisol and adrenaline, down and boosting endorphins serotonin and dopamine.
Hold off on getting a massage if you’re unwell with a fever or flu-like symptoms, or if you have a contagious skin disease. Therapists have the right to cancel your treatment if they think it will harm you or them in any way.
If you have a health condition and you’re not sure about booking a massage, consult your GP for advice beforehand.
