  • Massage has done wonders for my life. I recently started having a lot of pain in my arm and when I went to the doctor I was told I had tennis elbow ( dont play tennis or any sort of activity which has the same motions). The next day I went to a local massage school where they offer excellent fees for a one hour full body massage. The massage thereapist took a look at my arm and found huge knots in the muscles above and below my elbow. She worked it out and the pain went away!!! If you have the right therapist, you can leave that place feeling like you are on a huge high and like a new person. It's excellent for detoxing and I normally get one the day after my period ends.
  • great article. I'd like to just get my feet rubbed, as they cover all my discomfort. I'm going to look into the massage schools, as I've heard they do them for a lot less.
  • I have upper back and neck pain, and I love a good massage. I get massages from my chiropractor's office. The best part is that some insurance company's will cover a massage if it is done at a chiropractor office.
  • I got my first massage this year and loved it. I have fibromyalgia and it was tender yet in the end after being sore it was still well worth it. I plan to have at least 4 a year from now on.

    I love massages. I was in a car accident 3 1/2 yrs ago, and got my first one back then. Now I go atleast once a month for a full body deep tissue massage. It helps so much. When I am stressed out from my job, my body takes most of the brunt, so it is good to go and get my muscles untightened. I always leave feeling really really relaxed.
  • Massage is a fabulous way to relax and give yourself a well deserved personal hour. I get a massage every week. I called the local college - where therapists are trained - the massage is an hour and the cost is only $25.00 It's a great option and the hours are usually really great.

  • I am a Registered MAssage Therapist and I couldn't agree more. Regular massage is a great way to manage stress and 'treat' yourself. Make you a priority and book one once a month!
  • We recently got a massage chair at work. I love it! I get a massage every day at work, and I get to vary it based on what I feel I need that day. I still want to go for a "live" massage though... I highly recommend massages!
  • Oooo thanx for this article reminding us that it's easier to lose weight when you're rich! =)
    I'd love to go have a professional massage, but for now, I'll just havta save my pennies and talk my hubby into massages =)
  • I saw the benefits of massage and weight loss years ago. I became a National certified massage therapist because of what massage did for me.

    Thanks for the article and thanks for reminding to make time for that massage trade!
  • I got a certificate for Christmas for a massage! Thanks for reminding me to book a appoointment!
  • I too am a massage therapist and thank you for writing this article. Massage is good for all systems in the body and clears your mind from all the noise and clutter we have to deal with on a daily basis.
  • I too am a massage therapist, and I cannot agree more that it is so important for so many reasons to integrate massage into a healthy lifestyle. We spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on maintaining our vehicles, but how much do we spend on maintaining ourselves? Thank you for the article.
  • Thank you for writting this article. I have been stressed more than usual lately and gained 10lbs. Of course not by stress alone but with the cravings that came with it. I haven't been walking much these last few months and walking is my way of releiving my stress. I remember last winter feeling so relaxed from walking everyday. I think it's about time I put on my walking shoes.
