Those of us who practice the art of massage, and those that enjoy receiving regular bodywork, instinctively know the degree of healing that can result from therapeutic touch. It seems that the rest of the world is beginning to catch on. According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, massage therapy has been shown to be helpful in treating everything from cancer to back pain. As more studios are done, it is becoming obvious that massage is more than just a luxury… it is medicine. Consumers are increasingly demanding (and paying out of pocket) for complimentary therapies such as massage and acupuncture. More hospitals and clinics are offering massage to their patients and a few insurance providers are offering limited coverage for alternative therapies.
