Message outperforms meds for low-back pain

At first I read this and I was like, “Der.” But I read on and found that this is a particularly good explanation of the benefits of massage and body work.

The investigation conducted by the Group Health Research Institute in Seattle involved 400 patients who had low back pain, the majority of which were middle aged, Caucasian and female. Researchers found those who were given a series of relaxation massage or structural massage were better able to work and be active than those who were given traditional medical care, such as pain pills, muscle relaxants or physical therapy.
