Health Tip: Benefits of Massage

(HealthDay News) -- Massage involves the pressing, rubbing and manipulating of the skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments, says Mayo Clinic.

Though not a replacement for regular medical care, it can accompany treatment of a range of conditions.

Mayo says benefits of getting a message may include:

  • Reduction of pain and muscle tension.

  • Less pain from soft-tissue injuries.

  • Feelings of caring, comfort and connection.

Mayo Clinic reminds you to discuss the pros and cons of massage with a doctor, especially if you are pregnant, have cancer or have unexplained pain.
