In the coming weeks, a growing number of researchers will attempt to find a new treatment for depression.
They may find that the existing treatment is ineffective, or they may discover that a new one has been developed.
One such therapy is massage.
It’s a form of non-invasive therapy that uses the natural movements of the body to treat depression.
The idea is that you massage the parts of your body that have been activated by the symptoms of depression, and then relax and rejuvenate those areas, according to the American Psychological Association.
The process is described in this video.
But massage has been around for quite a while.
Many of us use massage as a way to relieve anxiety, anger, and stress.
We’ve used it for healing wounds, easing pain, and even treating diabetes.
In fact, there are hundreds of massage therapists in the United States, according the American Association of University Women.
And, according a recent report from the National Institutes of Health, about half of massage therapy treatments are for depression, anxiety, or chronic pain.
According to the Mayo Clinic, massage has also been shown to be effective for treating certain types of cancer, helping patients cope with severe pain, or easing the symptoms and anxiety of arthritis.
And, it can help relieve symptoms of diabetes.
The best massage techniques and treatments are not only based on science, they are based on the healthiest practices, according The American College of Physicians, the American Psychiatric Association, and the National Academy of Sciences.
If you or someone you know is struggling with depression, talk to your doctor.
The treatment that works best for you will be the treatment that helps you most, according Mayo Clinic.
