Depression and Anxiety

A good place to start when describe mental conditions is with the cookie cutter analogy. The theory of a cookie cutter is to make the same shape each time it's pressed into the dough. However the practice of one demonstrates that sometimes the dough sticks to the cutter which can deform the cookie, or the dough rips, etc. What happens in practice is that even though every cookie should be exactly the same, anomalies or differences do occur.

There are a few popular hypotheses to explain why some individuals get clinically depressed that involve differences in various aspects to the construction and functioning of neurotransmitters in the brain. There is great importance in these, as it suggests suffering from these conditions isn't necessarily the sufferer's fault.

Some of the symptoms of depression and anxiety, such as fatigue, insomnia, reduced desire to eat, and an inability to focus can manifest physically, which results in aches and pains throughout the body. Massage Therapy can help reduce the physical symptoms, which can help sufferers get the sleep they need.

Each person experiences depression and anxiety differently, so Massage Therapy sessions will be tailored to each person's needs.
