Anxiety is part of the human condition and used to deal with situations of danger or risk. However, when it is too intense, it becomes a source of suffering that is necessary to be controlled.
Music relieves anxiety just as well as a massage does. Simply look to relax while listening to soft and soothing music.
The researchers were surprised to find that massages did not reduce anxiety any more than lying down and listening to pleasant music.
Thus, the right music (such as “The Four Seasons” by Antonio Vivaldi) can be not only be useful, but much less expensive than other treatments, such as massage or thermotherapy. This could be the most beneficial option for people with generalized anxiety disorder that may want to try a relaxation therapy that is oriented towards complementary medicine.
