Does massage just make you feel good or does it have more long-lasting effects?  Is it just placebo? What is placebo?


First, good massage does make you feel good. A qualified massage therapist loosens tight muscles, reduces spasm and induces a state of near-hypnotic relaxation.  Scientific study has now shown various massage techniques does help back and neck pain problems without necessarily being of deep tissue style.  The effects are both short and long-lasting.  If muscle spasm is reduced it allows for easier stretching and other instructed exercises to be undertaken and this will lead to subsequent improvement.
