More on the Benefits of Massage

Excerpt from Mayo Clinic article:
"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.
Some studies have found massage helpful for stress relief, managing anxiety and depression, pain and stiffness, blood pressure control, sports-related injuries, and boosting immunity. Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often involves caring, comfort, a sense of empowerment and creating deep connections with their massage therapist."
