Thank you Carrie Fisher for your mental health advocacy, and for being so brave and outspoken about your own bi-polar disorder.

Here is a little reminder that massage helps to manage anxiety and depression and other mental health disorders that make us uncomfortable in our own skins, along with medication both herbal and allopathic.  If there's a lack of serotonin and dopamine, or a need for relaxation and stress relief, massage can help.  It can be beneficial to mind, body, and soul, to have massage on your team of treatments. 

"One of the things that baffles me (and there are quite a few) is how there can be so much lingering stigma with regards to mental illness, specifically bipolar disorder.  In my opinion, living with manic depression takes a tremendous amount of balls....At times, being bipolar can be an all-consuming challenge, requiring a lot of stamina and even more courage, so if you're living with this illness and functioning at all, it's something to be proud of, not ashamed of." - Carrie Fisher
