  Health Tip: Get a Massage
 
  It may help your mind and body

  2/17/2017

 

(HealthDay News) -- Massage therapy can help relax your body and mind, easing pain and helping you cope with stress.

The Mayo Clinic says possible benefits of massage include:

  • Managing anxiety, stress-related insomnia and headache.
  • Easing pain and discomfort associated with fibromyalgia, sports-related injuries, injuries of the soft tissues and temporomandibular joint pain.
  • Reducing muscle tension.

Despite its possible benefits, Mayo says, massage therapy should not be considered a replacement for regular medical care.
