Oxytocin May Be The Key To Reducing Social Stress And Stage Fright Among Professional Performers, According To A New Study

And before and after the performance, each participant completed two questionnaires. The first evaluated their mood, while the second focused on the singers’ perceptions of themselves and how they performed.

And amazingly, the researchers’ analysis concluded that the singers who received a dose of oxytocin prior to performing were less anxious and less self-critical post-performance. Additionally, no adverse side effects were observed.

Now, the team believes that oxytocin’s effect on social stress warrants further research and perhaps application to professionals in performance fields who are often faced with anxiety.

“This finding is exploratory and, if confirmed in future studies, may have relevance for musicians– especially those who constantly experience and recognize the impact of negative and catastrophic thoughts on performance and professional activities,” the study reads.
