Relaxation is just one of many benefits of Therapeutic Massage. As a popular treatment for muscle ache and soreness, just 10 minutes of Therapeutic Massage can reduce inflammation and facilitate self-healing. Chronic back pain can also be treated with Therapeutic Massage; a 2011 study found Therapeutic Massage to be just as effective as medication, acupuncture, yoga or exercise (Cherkin, Annals of Internal Medicine, 2011). Therapeutic Massage can reduce cortisol, the stress hormone associated with anxiety, and increase serotonin and dopamine to alleviate depression. Headache sufferers can also find relief through Therapeutic Massage; according to WebMD and the Touch Research Institute (TRI), Therapeutic Massage can reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches. TRI has also found that Therapeutic Massage can improve alertness. Subjects given a 15-minute chair massage were found to complete a series of math problems quicker and more accurately. Therapeutic Massage also promotes healthy sleep through its affect on Delta Waves, the waves associated with deep sleep (Health magazine).
