Benefits of Massage

 

While massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine, it's increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.                      

 Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often involves caring, comfort, a sense of empowerment and creating deep connections with their massage therapist.

Despite its benefits, massage isn't meant as a replacement for regular medical care. Let your doctor know you're trying massage and be sure to follow any standard treatment plans you have.
