Health Benefits of Massage

Factoid Massage

Sure, massage can help you relax. But it does much more than that. "Massage can be a powerful ally in your health-care regimen," says Shereen Young, LMT, a massage therapist at University of Utah Health.

Regular massage can reduce stress and lower blood pressure, and improve blood circulation and concentration. But that's not all.
