Having been mostly sedentary the past year, along with sitting in a chair too small, looking at a screen to small, my back has been killing me lately. A few weeks a go I sprained a muscle, and had to walk to the pharmacy like a hunchback. Anyway, seeing as I've been far less anxious than usual, I managed to gather the courage to make an appointment for a back massage this afternoon. So far it seems it reduces cortisol levels (acutely), and raises serotonin and dopamine levels. Sounds like a win-win situation to me.

Here's a comprehensive article on massage studies done in different disorders, including PTSD (some people believe HPPD might be a form of PTSD).

I'll add more later, for now I have to take a shower and catch a bus!

EDIT: well I got bored with this. But feel free to add anything relevant here.
