What is Generalized Anxiety Disorder?
Generalized anxiety disorder is characterized by excessive and uncontrollable worry about a number of different issues (such as relationships, work performance, or safety), lasting for at least six months. This is often accompanied by physical anxiety symptoms such as muscle tension or upset stomach. Individuals with this disorder are often easily fatigued and may experience irritability, as well as sleep and concentration difficulties.
We are currently conducting a massage and touch therapy study for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder. Participants who are eligible will receive either 1) 6 weeks of twice-a-week light touch therapy, followed by 6 weeks of twice-a-week Swedish massage therapy, or 2) 12 weeks of twice-a-week Swedish massage therapy.
