Massage an old cure with a new crew – The Lawton Constitution

The history of massage therapy goes back many thousands of years and reflexology dates back at least 4000 years. The art of massage is helpful to people with ailments such as back pain, cancer and AIDS. Research suggests that we have to continually get massages to reap the benefits though. Everyone is living under a lot of stress, which affects their sleep, digestion, and immune system. Receiving a massage can alleviate these issues as well.

Key Takeaways:

  • The roots of what we call, today, massage-therapy and reflexology go back as many as 4000 years.
  • In today’s world stress hormones are activated far more often than they’re needed, which weakens immunity, which makes stress-relievers, like this form of therapy, imperative.
  • For many of the conditions positively impacted by the therapy, study suggests that sessions need to be ongoing for the benefits to persist.

“There is evidence massage may help with back pain and may improve quality of life for people with depression, cancer and HIV/AIDS.”
