3 Reasons to Give Mom the Gift of Massage Therapy

Mother's Day is coming up on May 14. Massage therapy can positively affect health and wellness—it's the perfect gift for mothers of all ages.

1. Massage is Good Medicine. According to AMTA's 2016 Consumer Survey, 54 percent of physicians have recommended getting a massage, and 90 percent of consumers believe massage can be beneficial to health and wellness.

2. Massage therapy can help a variety of health conditions. From pain management to stress relief, massage therapy is more than pampering. Massage therapy is shown to help medical conditions such as low back pain, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure and more.

3. Massage for all stages of life. Research indicates massage therapy can help reduce anxiety in new mothers. Massage therapy is shown to help chronic pain in seniors, particularly in the joints, while improving stability and posture.
