Time for a massage?

Time for a massage?
Massage therapy can help with a wide variety of health conditions, says the AMTA.

Recent studies are showing that massage is much more than a stress reliever.

Instead of saving a rubdown for a day at the spa, the American Massage Therapy Association says regular massages can help with chronic back pain, osteoarthritis of the knee, inflammation after exercise, and fibromyalgia.

The AMTA reports patients with chronic back pain recieving a one-hour massage once a week for 10 weeks are twice as likely to report significant improvements in both pain and fuction.

For more information on recent studies, visit AMTA.
