The Effectiveness of Massage Therapy

Efficacy of Massage Therapy for Pain

According to the American Massage Therapy Association, massage therapy is being used as a non-pharmacologic approach to pain relief. Studies reveal that massage therapy can ease a variety of types of pain. In addition to improving pain, massage has shown beneficial results in improving fatigue, quality of life, and symptom management.
