Massage Therapy = Longer Life?
A recent study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine confirms that massage therapy for adults can add as many as 6 years to your life. This is great news for regular massage aficionados and beginners alike. There’s no better time to include regular massage therapy to improve your health and increase longevity. "The benefits of massage actually last for days, and the more you experience them, the more likely your body is to adjust permanently,” says the author of the study, Dr. Alan Kaye.
For regular massage indulgers, this is not new news. Anyone who has already incorporated massage therapy into their repertoire knows first-hand the many benefits it can bestow. Besides a longer life, look forward to better sleep, a decrease in muscular aches and pains, an increase in libido, and much more.
