Promoting relaxation and well-being, massage can be applied with hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, or feet.

The results from a number of studies on the effects of massage, claim to have a wide range of benefits. It helps ease sore muscles by increasing and improving circulation.This fact is supported by a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine which discovered that massage therapy is as effective as other methods of treatment for chronic back pain.

A massage can reduce anxiety and depression as human touch can be incredibly therapeutic and relaxing. A study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry found that patients who were depressed and anxious became much more relaxed and happy after massages, and this had, in turn, reduced their stress levels.

Furthermore, it boosts patients’ white blood cell count which plays a major role in defending the body from diseases. As massage decreases the frequency and severity of tension headaches, try booking a massage the next time you experience a severe headache and experience the benefit first hand.
