Massage Therapy

The advantages of massage therapy

The advantages of massage therapy have been proven by many studies conducted over the years. Studies show that even one massage session can reduce stress, anxiety, blood pressure, headaches and high heart rate among many other factors. Additional advantages from a number of experiments which were made in 2008 in the massage therapy field clearly indicated that massage can significantly ease back pain.

American Society and the American College of physiotherapists recommend that chiropractors and physiotherapists use massage treatments (as well as progressive relaxation, yoga, acupuncture and chiropractic) when patients with chronic low back pain do not respond to conventional treatment.
