consumers are requesting massage therapy to deal with certain health conditions? The research showing the validity of massage as a drug-free option for patients
to consider has been steadily growing over the last few years and hospitals are finding it a profitable business practice to offer massage and other complementary therapies
to their patients.

and pain, low-back and chronic neck pain, lowering blood pressure
, reducing the frequency of headaches and boosting the body’s immune system.
Patients and their families have provided positive feedback
, including scheduling their planned admissions for treatment around the days the massage therapist is available.
