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.  While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, many studies have found massage helpful for:

  •  Stress relief

  • Pain

  • Stiffness

  • Blood pressure control

  • Infant growth

  • Sports-related injuries
