Massage is a healing modality used as a complementary therapy in clinical and integrative care settings.
Many hospitals, clinics and cancer or wellness centers increasingly recognize the power of touch to promote health and well-being, and offer massage therapy to their patients.
Recent research is creating a new understanding of those benefits for people of all ages, from patients undergoing treatment for complex medical conditions to hard-working wage earners just wanting to alleviate stress.
