Relieving Stress And Anxiety
Children are the precious little gifts that God has given us. They are what most people look forward to at the end of a long day. They can bring so much joy and playful mischief into our lives. That’s why it’s especially difficult for us when we see them going through anxiety or are under extreme stress.
Most people don’t think that children can experience stress. After all, what do they have to worry about in life when they’re under the care of their parents? This is a common misconception. Children have feelings and emotions just like the rest of us and just like adults, they can also experience anxiety and stress. It’s difficult to watch because most of the time, we don’t know what to do about it or how to ease their anxiety levels. Well, here’s some good news for you! Massage therapy can help. It has been proven to help relieve stress and anxiety that’s experienced by children.
How do children deal with stress?
Adults have a lot of stressors in their life like stress from the work environment, stress about relationships and other personal things, stress about an upcoming event or a big change that’s coming up, and many others. Dealing with stress when you understand it can be hard enough. So imagine dealing with it when you don’t really know much about it at all. That’s what children who are overcome by anxiety and stress go through on a daily basis.
For most children, vocalizing their feelings can be a bit of a problem. They’re not very good at managing their anxiety levels either. That’s why it’s even more important that we take care of our little ones. For most children going through stress or anxiety, the symptoms are short-lived.
What triggers stress and anxiety in children?
Anxiety and stress can be triggered by big changes that happen in their lives. Like the loss of a parent, moving to a new place, starting at a new school, or even at the thought of making a new friend. Anxiety is regarded as quite normal as they are constantly growing and developing. They will find quite a few things difficult to cope with and manage and that can cause stress.
So how does massage therapy help?
Some children experience the symptoms of stress and anxiety in a different way than others and may need professional help to calm and reassure them. This is where massage therapy comes in. Massage therapy generates several positive changes in a child. It improves blood circulation and helps with decreasing symptoms of anxiety. It allows children to function normally with a renewed sense of hope. Ask your doctor for referrals to a licensed massage therapist in your area.
