Really? Massage Therapy works??

News Flash: Recent Research Shows Massage is Effective!

The title of this blog post is very tongue-in-cheek, to be sure. Until recently, there has been a paucity of information available on the efficacy of massage therapy from a scientifically based perspective. Massage therapists, physios, and chiropractors have long known that massage is an effective form of treatment for soft tissue injuries.

Finally scientific research is backing up many of the previous theories as to how massage aids healing. A body of evidence is rapidly growing to support the use of massage for many types of soft-tissue problems. I hope to continue to see massage perceived less as a "luxury" and more as a viable option for treatment.
