Massage Therapy Research
Field, Tiffany; Diego, Miguel; Hernandez-Reif, Maria
Developmental Review, v27 n1 p75-89 Mar 2007
Massage therapy has been notably effective in preventing prematurity, enhancing growth of infants, increasing attentiveness, decreasing depression and aggression, alleviating motor problems, reducing pain, and enhancing immune function. This review covers massage therapy research from the last decade, as an update to the American Psychologist 1998 review paper. Models are presented for potential biochemical and physiological mechanisms underlying the massage therapy effects.
