What does anxiety or stress mean?
Anxiety is defined as a feeling of worry, fear, or unease due to a certain situation such as a job interview, medical operation, or procedure. Besides, it can be the result of a traumatic event or fear. Anxiety can remain even if the stressor is no longer present.
Stress, on the other hand, is the body’s response to an external stimulus such as a deadline, big test, or a threatening situation.
Signs and symptoms of anxiety or stress:
Here is the list of common signs and symptoms of anxiety or stress:
Insomnia (difficulty sleeping).
High breathing rate.
High heartbeat rate.
Change in appetite.
Feeling of impending doom.
Panic, particularly in a social setting
Anxiety or stressful disorders:
These disorders can occur due to frequent experiences of stress and anxiety even if the stressor is not present. Those are:
Panic disorder – causes panic attacks which are events of extreme fear alongside shortness of breath and pounding in the chest.
Generalized anxiety disorder – is when people frequently worry without the ability to control it. Reasons for worry can vary from thinking that something terrible might happen, but not being able to specify a reason at all.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder – causes you to repeat a specific action/action or have the same thoughts regularly.
Social phobia – is the disorder where one is unable to interact with people, in a social setting, due to an intense feeling of anxiety.
Post-traumatic stress disorder – results in remembering a life experience from the past, which was terrifying or gave you significant distress at the time, and is hurting your daily living.
Most of us are experiencing stress or anxiety often in our lives. It is normal as it helps us to prepare for stressful situations such as jobs, interviews, family, financial debt, health conditions, and so on. However, prolonged anxiety or stress can start to interfere with daily living which can harm our physical and psychological well-being. In this case, doctors sometimes prescribe marijuana, anxiety, or stress medication to treat neurological and mental health conditions.
How might Massage help?
Massage is excellent when it comes to managing anxiety or stress. Whether it is relaxation, therapeutic or deep tissue massage, the benefits are achieved by reducing muscle tension, promoting peace, and increasing the release of endorphins which are the ‘feel-good hormones.
How might Osteopathy help?
To help you manage anxiety or stress, an osteopath can use a variety of techniques and approaches. It can include the reduction of tension-type headaches and muscle tension. This can relax your sympathetic nervous system, which controls the ‘fight or flight response. Also, osteopaths can show you some breathing exercises, which can be very helpful when you feel that your stress or anxiety is becoming overwhelming. In addition, the therapist-patient interaction and therapeutic touch and movement during the treatment will make you feel more self-aware with an increased perception of body image, which positively affects stress and anxiety management.
How might Cupping help?
How can a Hijama be helpful?
Hijama or wet Cupping can cause the muscles to release the toxins so that the circulating lymph can carry them away for natural elimination from the body. Once the toxins are removed, you’ll also sense relief from the stress-causing negative emotions.
