Because of the healing benefits of massage, many insurance policies (such as automobile, personal injury insurance and Labor and Industries Insurance) include massage as a paid-for benefit when needed as part of a treatment plan. The January issue of the Mayo Women's HealthSource discusses the uses and benefits of massage and other hands-on therapies.

According to this article, almost everyone feels better after the soothing strokes of a massage. This process involves applying pressure to the body's soft tissues by rubbing, kneading or rolling. There are a variety of techniques and styles, such as deep tissue massage, where deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue are manipulated. Another approach focuses on trigger points — muscle "knots" that are painful when pressed.

Massage can help reduce pain, muscle soreness and swelling. It can improve circulation, joint flexibility and range of motion. Massage has been shown to help those with chronic back pain, migraines, knee osteoarthritis and cancer.
