I get massive knots that are the size of my hand on my skull behind my ears going down my neck. I took my service kitty and went for a massage. Getting massaged while having your beloved side kick with you is relaxing. I was actually relaxed while she was working out the knots. My whole body was riddled with knots from the constant stress of anxiety. Oh it hurts so good to get them out.
Massages should be covered for those with extreme anxiety. The physical body can not handle the constant stress anxiety brings on your body. It is a mental disease but has so many negative consequences on the physical body. It was to the point where it felt like my muscles were being shredded while using them. Massages are expensive and we need them. Our bodys can not handle it. Yoga and doing things yourself is not enough.
