All sorts of massage therapy started to become quite popular in the US in the 1800s and continued to grow in popularity through the 1940s when modern medicine breakthroughs discounted its benefits, and use dwindled. Nurses began to use it more in the 1960s to alleviate pain in patients. In the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta massage was deemed a core medical service, which gave it great credibility. It is good enough for world class athletes! Feel like trying it yet?

There is no way to blind-test massage therapy, as the person being tested is going to be touched, and we cannot deny that the sense of touch is very therapeutic by itself.
