Massage in the Media

Posted on September 30th, 2012 by Shari´ Parks

As I vacationed in The Bahamas, I had the opportunity to catch up on my leisure reading. One magazine I managed to pack is the Massage Magazine. This is a quote from WebMD.com written on July 22, 2011.

“Americans are flocking to Alternative Therapy. Most Americans believe that prescription medications are the most effective treatments for many common illnesses, but a Consumer Reports survey of more than 45,000 people finds that three-fourths of us are turning to alternative therapies like yoga and acupuncture.

The new report says 38million adults make more than 300 million visits per year to acupuncturist, chiropractors, massage therapist, and other practitioners of alternative and complementary techniques. Chiropractic, deep-tissue massage, and mind-body practices like yoga dominated the list of alternative treatments that respondents said were helpful for back pain, neck pain, and the aches of osteoarthritis.”
