While remedial therapy has been practiced in the east for ages, it is a comparatively new phenomenon in the west. While modern medicine's miracles have surprised many, an increasing number of individuals are turning to complementary therapies and non-invasive treatments for their problems. Massage treatment has never been more popular in America than it is now.

Research in Real Life
Massage treatment has been proven to be in a number of studies, a highly effective stress reduction technique. Earlier research from the University of Miami Medical School, which was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, found that adolescents who received 30 minutes of massage therapy daily were less sad and nervous than when they were enrolled.
The kids in the study population had much better development and behavior than the children in the control group, according to this study. The kids were also more cooperative, according to the study's nurses, and they were able to obtain a greater level of sleep habits. The children in the treatment group had lower amounts of cortisol (a stress hormone) in their saliva and urine on a biological level. Massage may have a big role in relieving stress, as studies immediately discovered.
Acceptance in the Community
It is really good that both the medical community and the general people are becoming more aware of the negative effects of stress on one's health and well-being. Stress, according to some doctors and academics, is to blame for more than 75% of all diseases in the Western world, including skin diseases, high blood pressure, migraines, digestive problems, muscular pain, and depression. The use of adult massage treatment traditions has the ability to significantly reduce the severity of many painful diseases.
“The mind, which before massage is in a perturbed, restless, vacillating and, even despondent state, becomes after massage, calm, quiet, peaceful and subdued; in fact, the wearied and worried mind has been converted into a mind restful, placid, and refreshed.”
Wrote eminent Victorian physician, Dr. Stretch Dowse, in 1887.

While present medicine has great potential in some areas, it is not good to neglect historical ideas and knowledge. Numerous people have benefited from massage treatment to help them cope with the stresses of contemporary life. It could be beneficial to you as well.
