Massage Benefits

Benefits of Massage Therapy Proven: Latest News

Massage Therapy benefits are numerous, and always have been. Rather than a hedonistic session of self-pampering, Massage Therapy, as of late, is being recognized as having clinical value in dealing with various health issues.

It is probably for that reason that the practice of massage therapy is nearly ubiquitous to the many regions of the world. From ancient China and Egypt, to Greece and Rome, touch therapy has been practiced for millennia.

In nearly every culture, we find unique healing modalities involving touch . The practice of Massage Therapy, in one form or another, probably extends as far back as pre-recorded history. After all, when a part of the body hurts, it's natural to want to massage it. People took note of the fact that rubbing a painful area was helpful.

In the past, we relied solely on anecdotal evidence (people's accounts) suggesting that Therapeutic Massage benefits exist. It seemed, from these anecdotal reports, that Massage Therapy could help with a range of health conditions and complaints. Until the twentieth century, anecdotal reports were satisfactory. As we entered the age of Modern Medicine, our expectations changed: claims without proof were no longer sufficient. This was reasonable.

For many decades, not many studies were conducted to find out the facts regarding the potential benefits of Massage Therapy. There just wasn't sufficient interest. Even some doctors would regularly received treatment, failed to consider whether the benefits of massage extended beyond the relief of sore muscles and a bit of relaxation.

In recent years, however, as Massage Therapy has gained a foothold in our society, increased interest and respect for therapeutic massage has led to a plethora of new research aimed at determining if Massage Therapy Benefits are real or just imaginary.

Massage Skeptics / Accusations of Quackery:

Some have accused Massage Therapists, Massage Therapy Schools, and/or certain massage modalities and techniques as being based on pseudo-scientific nonsense, essentially leveling accusations of promoting ‘quackery'. Many skeptics argue that massage therapy cannot help with ANY health condition, and to claim otherwise is, again, quackery. On this page, we explore some of the more common arguments against Massage Therapy and respond with fact. CLICK HERE to link to our Massage Skeptics Page.

Allegations of Quackery in Asian Bodywork Modalities

Asian Healing Modalities, such as Shiatsu, Acupressure, and others, are often characterized as fraudulent and ineffective, and even potentially harmful. Skeptics argue that such modalities are rooted in imaginary make-believe, as the concepts at the heart of such Chinese, Indian, and other Eastern schools of thought are derived from non-Western concepts and ideation. Should we respect a different approach, even if we are unsure why and how it works? Is that a call for more clinical research, or a ban on the study and practice of Chinese and Asian BodyWork Therapies? CLICK HERE to link to our Asian Healing Modalities Massage Quackery Page.

Quackery & Skepticism Links:

A page of nothing but links to web sites that address the phenomenon of QuackBusting. Included are links to some of the more popular Quackbusting and Skepticism sites, as well as a plethora of responses by those accused by known QuackBusters. The focus of this web page is NOT confined to alleged quackery or fraud in Massage Therapy, but rather provides a broad background on the indivudals and groups behind the movement to label all different kinds of Alternative Therapy as Quackery, as well as current court cases, and other related information.
