Massage therapy has been studied in pain management for a long time, and has been found to provide effective relief for a variety of conditions. Whether you suffer from arthritis, fibromyalgia, shoulder pain, low back pain or some other form of chronic pain, research indicates that massage can help.
Massage is also available at more locations than ever—spas, fitness centers, health care centers, massage therapists' offices or even in your own home. A professional massage therapist can work with you to choose the type of massage that best fits your needs for pain relief, relaxation, health and well-being.
No matter why or where you choose to have a massage, the most important thing to remember is to look for a qualified massage therapist.
