Peer-reviewed medical research has shown that the benefits of massage include pain relief, reduced anxiety and depression, and temporarily reduced blood pressure and heart rate. Theories behind what massage might do include blocking noicicpetion (gate control theory), activating the parasympathetic nervous system which may stimulate the release of endorphins and serotonin, preventing fibrosis or scar tissue, increasing the flow of lymph, and improving sleep.
Therapeutic massage is beneficial for many types of conditions as well as being an integral part of any stress management, lifestyle change or relaxation program.
