As a massage therapist, I have seen the effects of anxiety on the human body first-hand. Clients who come in with symptoms of anxiety often present with physical symptoms such as muscle tension, headaches, and fatigue. This is because anxiety triggers the "fight or flight" response in the body, causing an increase in stress hormones and a tightening of the muscles.
If you are someone who works out four or more times each week, you should add a deep tissue massage to your routine. And make it monthly! Tight muscles make your workouts suffer.
