Very helpful information from the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA); a very reputable organisation for massage therapists in the United States.

1. Reduce stress - The longterm effects of stress can take emotional and physical tolls. Massage therapy may relieve stress and conditions associated with it, such as tension headaches.

2. Get better sleepResearch indicates that massage can improve sleep in those with lower back pain, fibromaylgia, insomnia, pain and other health conditions.

3.  Boost mental health and wellnessResearch suggests that symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression (all associated with mental health) may be directly affected with massage therapy.

4. Manage pain - Pain can negatively affect a person’s quality of life and impede recovery from illness or injury. Research shows massage can help low-back pain, headaches, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and more.

5. Increase range of motion - Elite and recreational athletes alike can benefit from massage therapy. Massage can help reduce muscle tension, improve exercise performance and prevent injuries.
