Massage and Mental Health

1 in 5 Australians are affected by mental illness, yet many don’t seek help because of stigma.

We can all do something to help shed a more positive light on mental health. World Mental Health Day is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy.

We thought it was worth remembering that massage therapy can be a helpful form of support and care for people experiencing stress, anxiety and depression.

Studies have shows that massage therapy can have a profound effect on mood, with anxiety reduction being one of the most well-established effects.

AMT’s massage and mental health infographic provides a snapshot of the evidence.
