What are the Benefits of Therapeutic Massage?

Updated: May 5

Therapeutic Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It's increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. Studies of the benefits of therapeutic massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.


While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found therapeutic massage may also be helpful for:

Anxiety

Depression

Digestive disorders

Increasing Range of Motion

Fibromyalgia

Decreasing pain

Muscle tension

Headaches

Insomnia

Myofascial pain syndrome

Soft tissue strains or injuries

Injury recovery

Temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ)

Lowering high blood pressure

Relaxation


Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy therapeutic massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.
