A number of research studies show massage therapy to reduce heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases circulation of both blood and lymph flow, relax muscles, improve physical range of motion, and increase natural endorphins (compounds that enhance sense of well being). Although therapeutic massage does not increase muscle strength, it can stimulate weak, inactive muscles and, thus, partially compensate for the lack of exercise and inactivity resulting from illness or injury. It also can hasten and lead to a more complete recovery from exercise or injury.
The following conditions have been reported to show therapeutic massage to lessen or relieve many of associated symptoms:
|Arthritis Chronic and Acute Pain Gastrointestinal disorders Myofascial painStress
||Asthma Circulatory Disorders Immune Disorders Sports injuries Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) Dysfunction
||Carpal tunnel syndrome HeadacheInsomnia Reduced Range of Motion

|Certain Types of Cancer Some Skin Conditions
||Phlebitis Infectious diseases
