Benefits of Massage for Arthritis
Massage therapy is no longer considered just a luxury—it is often touted as a natural treatment for a variety of health ailments—including arthritis. The Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine says massage therapy can lead to a significant reduction of pain for those suffering from arthritis. Regular massage can lead to improvement in stiffness, range of motion, pain, and overall function of the joints.
