Massage is good for reliving aches and pains and can even help soothe sore muscles if you have overdone the general workout.
But did you know that massage therapy is also a powerful painkiller that can be used to help people suffering from back problems? Research has shown regular massage can help to reduce the amount of medication needed.

Research also shows that regular massage therapy combined with exercise helps people suffering from chronic back pain to feel less anxious about their condition too.
A study that took place at a pain management clinic in Western New York, involved 60 chronic low back pain patients. The participants all recorded their own pain levels before and after having massage therapy on a scale of one to 10. There was a significant difference between the pre-and post-treatment pain rating in the group that had regular massage, compared to the control group who carried on as normal, reported no changes to their pain levels.
