Massage Therapy as a Healthy Drugs Alternative

Massage Therapy as a Healthy Drugs Alternative

Massage therapy is proved to relieve pain by many studies & researches. When patients combine use of prescribed pain-relief medicine with massage therapy, they get extra health benefits like:

  • Reduced swelling, by promoting circulation
  • Pain relief, reducing reliance on opioids
  • Reduced anxiety

To prove this point, Human Touch experts conducted a research project to know how massage chair therapy can help reduce use of medication in 2014 and in 2022 with the help of the Portland Research Group. Here are the main takeaways:

  • 49% who took pain medications and experienced pain took less medication after buying a Human Touch massage chair
  • 14% of these respondents who purchased a Human Touch massage chair actually no longer take pain medication

Based on this research and Human Touch wellness specialists' expertise, a list of best massage chairs for pain management was compiled.
