Psychotherapy which is also known as talk therapy is a way of helping people who deal with a variety of mental illnesses and emotional problems. People look at psychotherapy as a way of eliminating or controlling symptoms which they deem troubling. This comes from a desire to want to function better in society as well as feeling better and healthier.

Some of the problems that psychotherapy aims to address are everyday problems coping with the stress of daily life, trauma and medical illnesses or loss such as the death of a loved one. Specific mental problems addressed include depression and anxiety. There are many different types of psychotherapy with some ways working better with specific issues or problems. Psychotherapy is sometimes combined with medicines and other therapies in order to help the patient.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy involves manipulating the soft tissues in the body. Soft tissue includes the muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and the joints. Massage therapy is a healthcare option that addresses discomfort that some people live with every day. It also is often used to deal with occupational stress, overuse of muscles and chronic pain conditions.

Massage therapy also has very few risks when it is approached safely and provided by a trained professional. It isn’t a modern marvel as its use dates back thousands of years. References can be found in ancient writings from China, Japan, India, Arabic nations, Egypt, Greek and Rome. Massages were also widespread in Europe during the Renaissance.

18 million adults, as well as 700,000 children received massage therapy in 2006 according to the National Health Interview Survey 2007. It is used to relieve pain, rehabilitate sports injuries, reduce stress, increase relaxation, address anxiety as well as depression and aid general wellness.

Massage therapy deals with the body to improve a persons’ quality of life whereas psychotherapy works with a persons mind to achieve the same goal. What would happen if you combine the two? Combining the two would result in better feelings of self-realization.
