At times, many people have wondered if massage therapy works. Well, without any doubt, both the scientific and the anecdotal evidence have shown that the answer to that question is a resounding yes!
Massage therapy works extremely well for many conditions, moderately well for some conditions and of course there are other conditions for which it is not suited at all. In the year ending July 2015, a little less than 20% of the adult American population had had a massage at least once according to the American Massage Therapy Association.
Each year more and more people realize the benefits of professional massage and every year there are about 20% massages experienced than the year earlier. According to surveys, over half of the massages given in 2015 were given specifically for medical or health reasons like muscle spasms, pain management, overall body wellness or rehabilitation from injury.
In that same year, about a third of the massage clients choose a massage for stress reduction and relaxation. Study results always vary a little, but some show that over 90% of adults in the United States believe that professional massage therapy can be effective in eliminating or reducing pain.
