In the most recent edition of the Mayo Clinic Health Letter, the benefits of massage therapy are discussed.
Massage has been proven to effectively reduce stress, pain, and muscle tension. Research has shown massage releases endorphins which act as the body’s natural painkillers. It also reduces people’s heart rate and can enhance the immune system.
Most musculoskeletal injuries such as strains, sprains, low back pain, and tendinitis can also be helped with massage. Massage therapy also offers benefits for a number of mental health conditions including depression, anxiety, and stress.
