Did you know that there have been over 100 medical studies conducted to look at the positive effects of massage therapy on a variety of medical conditions? Everything from depression, back pain, behavior problems in children, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Hypertension, stress, and migraine headaches were shown to be helped with massage therapy. In the back pain study the findings showed “Massage lessened lower back pain, depression and anxiety, and improved sleep. The massage therapy group also showed improved range of motion and their serotonin and dopamine levels were higher.”
