Massage Therapy Research: A Valuable Resource for You and Your Clients

The therapeutic benefits of massage continue to be researched and studied. Recent research has shown the effectiveness of massage for conditions such as low back pain, reducing headache frequency and decreasing pain in cancer patients, just to name a few.

Why it is important to stay informed on the current research in massage therapy? 

  • Research validates techniques that work
  • It helps others understand the importance of what you do
  • It helps others see you as a part of the health care team
  • It provides you the opportunity to help your clients achieve better outcomes
