Massage is part of complementary and integrative medicine. It’s increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.
Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, massage often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection to those who are living with serious illness, treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation, depression and other stressful situations. Caretakers get special relief from their stress with massage.
