There are a million different forms of stress relief therapy out there for you to take advantage of. Aroma therapy involves the use of volatile plant oils to help attain mental and physical health and can serve as an excellent relaxation ritual. Different massage therapies (Swedish, Thai, Reflexology) can also help reduce stress, lower blood pressure, relieve pain, and aid circulation.

Music Therapy is also an excellent form of stress relief therapy. A number of experts believe that the rhythm and the beat of music create a calming effect for the listener, some suggesting that our mother's heartbeat when we were in the womb explains this connection. Whatever the reason, music therapy coupled with certain meditation techniques is highly effective.

Other Forms of Stress Relief Therapy

Sound therapy is another form of anxiety treatment you can use in your daily life. This treatment utilizes sound in a rhythmic structure to unravel stressed nerves and calm the brain, soothing the mind-body as a whole. Consequently, vibrations in the body are restored to equilibrium making you feel more relaxed and peaceful.

Researchers have even come up with something called pet therapy. That's right! Research demonstrates that owning a pet can reduce stress induced symptoms because animals typically make us feel safe and wanted. In fact, research indicates those who have suffered a coronary and own a pet will generally live longer than those who suffered a coronary and do not own a pet.
