This article talks about a study which showed that massage was more effective than “usual medical care” for back pain.  Specific, structural massage and Swedish relaxation massage were both correlated with less pain, improved mobility, and better functioning.  Depending on the client’s needs, I like to blend these techniques for the best of both worlds.  I have had many clients say, “That was the best combination of relaxation and deep tissue I’ve ever had!”
