Massage research around the world

If you would like to book a massage treatment for any of the conditions listed below, please give me a call at 082 812 9721.

What I hope to list here is research undertaken by leaders in the field of therapeutic massage. There are many published research papers that have been published, with many interesting results. Of course it costs money to get copies of these papers, so this page ma take some time to compile, and I'm sure will never really be finished.

How ever the Massage Therapy Association has a page full of research articles at Research on Massage therapy

Body Image treatment with massage therapy:

There has been very little study don into the effects of massage on body image. But there is quite a lot of anecdotal evidence. I have done a large study on volunteers (about 30 women, 5 massages each). So for it is proving very effective. I have written up the research and results, which are available at this link.
