People use massage therapy techniques for relaxation and improved well-being and to address a specific complaint, such as pain or limited range of motion.  Research says massage therapies contribute to each goal. The Academy realizes that massage therapy helps the body in many ways.  It relaxes muscle tissue, which leads to decreased nerve compression, increased joint space, and wider range of motion. Each leads to reduced pain and improved function. Massage therapy also improves circulation, which enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells and helps remove waste products. These circulatory effects have value in the treatment of some inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis or edema.  Massage therapy is induces a relaxation response, which lowers the heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure; boosts the immune system; and generally decreases the physical effects of stress.
