Hi there.  There are plenty of people that rock to alleviate anxiety.  Have you ever seen a psychologist?  I don't rock now but I used to rock myself as a baby and into my elementary school years.  I would rock myself to sleep.  But there are plenty of adults that rock.  Let me know if you have seen a professional....
