8. Chronic Pain Relief
If you’re popping pills every day because of a bad back or shoulders that always seem to be stiff and sore, a massage may allow you to cut back on the number of pills you take. Swedish massage and so-called sports massage are both excellent means of addressing the source of sore muscles.
Swedish massage gently eases away pain while sports massage provides targeted attention to those areas of the body that cause you problems. In some cases, massage may relieve pain so effectively that pills are no longer needed.
