Study for effectiveness of massage in treating lower back pain

To kick off I wanted to share the information that I and many massage fans have known all along – massage really does work!  I stumbled upon a report recently from the Group Health Research Institute in the States, which claims :  “Researchers at Group Health Center for Health Studies found therapeutic massage to be most effective for improving function in persisent  lower back pain“.  Read the report here.    It’s wonderful to see that so much research is being carried out into natural thearpy treatment for chronic back pain.  This will hopefully give people the choice to seek other alternatives to medication to manage their back pain.
