Here are a few interesting massage facts provided by NCBTMB:

  • Today, 39 million American adults – more than one out of every six – get at least one massage each year.
  • Massage therapy has been proven effective in:
    Relieving back pain
    Boosting immune system
    Reducing anxiety
    Lowering blood pressure
    Treating migraines
    Decreasing carpal tunnel symptoms
    Easing post-operative pain

  • Because massage and bodywork directly or indirectly affects every system of the body, it promotes health, prevents illness and injury, and speeds recovery.
  • In 1996, massage therapy and bodywork was officially offered for the first time as a core medical service in the Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, and nationally certified practitioners provided key medical services.
