Massage therapy has a number of benefits, but don't take our word for it, listen to the medical experts.
This Mayo Clinic article summarizes some of the common types of massage (including swedish massage, deep tissue massage, sports massage, and trigger point massage), key benefits of regular massage therapy, and even some risks.
As the staff at Mayo concludes, "Brush aside any thoughts that massage is only a feel-good way to indulge or pamper yourself. To the contrary, massage can be a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health and well-being, whether you have a specific health condition or are just looking for another stress reliever"
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
