Massage As Medicine

More and more, massage is being used as medicine according to this Pennsylvania newscast.

IN FACT, THE AMERICAN HOSPITAL ASSOCIATION RECENTLY SURVEYED MORE THAN 1000 OF ITS HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS AND FOUND THAT 82% ARE NOW USING MASSAGE FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT.

MASSAGE HAS LONG BEEN PRESCRIBED FOR BACK PAIN... NOW, RESEARCH SHOWS IT HELPS CANCER PATIENTS, BURN VICTIMS, AND ARTHRITIS SUFFERERS. TWO RECENT STUDIES ALSO FOUND THAT MASSAGE CAN EASE THE SYMPTOMS OF ALZHEIMER'S AND STOP MUSCLE SPASMS AFTER HEART BYPASS SURGERY.
