Are you achy or having trouble sleeping? The benefits of massage go beyond feelings of relaxation and wellness.
The American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society now include massage as one of their recommendations for treating low back pain.
And a study into the effectiveness of both relaxation and structural massage and other care on lower back pain found that a 10-week massage treatment reduced pain more than medications and exercises – and the effects lasted for six months.
