What is the evidence?

What evidence is there of the benefits of holistic therapies?

Studies have shown that massage may help relieve stress, anxiety and pain, especially back pain and fibromyalgia (a condition with painful, stiff and tender muscles and joints) and can lower blood pressure and heart rate. It’s been shown to give short-term benefits to those undergoing chemotherapy, by relieving anxiety and depression, and to offer some help for certain physical conditions such as constipation and menstrual pain.
