How much do we know about massage therapy?

A lot of research on massage therapy for various conditions has been carried out, but some of the research hasn’t been of high quality, and the mechanisms by which massage therapy has its effects aren’t well understood.

What do we know about the effectiveness of massage therapy?

Research suggests that massage therapy may help relieve several kinds of pain, but in most instances, the evidence is not strong, and massage may provide only short-term relief. Massage may be helpful for anxiety and depression in people with fibromyalgia, cancer, or HIV/AIDS. Massage therapy may help premature infants gain weight, but it hasn’t been clearly shown to have benefits for full-term infants.

The risk of harmful effects from massage therapy appears to be low. However, there have been rare reports of serious side effects.

Massage may provide relief from chronic pain, tension or injury.¹
