Massage Isn't Pampering

Did you catch the article that came out in the March 13, 2012 Wall Street Journal?

"Don't Call It Pampering: 
Massage Wants to Be Medicine" 
by Andrea Petersen can be read in full here.

As you read, you'll learn that clinical studies have proven that massage therapy:
  • Boosts immune function in women with breast cancer
  • Improves symptoms in children with asthma
  • Increases grip strength in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Helps premature babies gain weight
  • Is recommended by the American Pain Society for treating low back pain
  • Releases toxins
  • Improves circulation
  • Reduces the stress hormone cortisol in the blood
  • Decreases inflammation and allergic reactions
  • Boosts white blood cells that fight infection

And... this is only the start of many research studies to come!
