Massage Therapy, because it is associated with feeling good and relaxation, has been seen as more pampering than health care treatment. It really should be seen as a complimentary option to treatment for various health issues because it does have a relaxation effect, helping to calm down our nervous system This can help decrease pain, reduce stress, and aid in sleep. A recent study from the University of Illinois at Chicago has helped demonstrate that massage can help improve general blood flow and decrease muscle soreness after exercise.
