Massage therapy has become widely accepted as part of integrative health care in major hospitals and in daily medical practice.

This document provides a summary literature review on the efficacy of massage and examines statistics for its use by the American consumer, sample case studies of its use in health care settings, and summaries of various health issues for which research demonstrates various levels of efficacy.
