A recent study has found that regular massage therapy is beneficial when it comes to treating pain and fatigue associated with multiple sclerosis (MS).
Twenty-four MS patients received massage therapy sessions once a week over a six-week period. All the participants reported an improvement in pain and fatigue symptoms, which in turn led to better overall health and quality of life. The patients also experienced a reduction in spasticity and said they felt their mental health had also benefited from the treatment.
Currently, around a third of multiple sclerosis patients already supplement their conventional treatment with regular massage therapy. Read more about this study here.
