This specific study was conducted in several senior residential care homes to see what benefits massage provided to the residents.

Conclusion: 14 studies dating from 1993 to 2012 were conducted and thoroughly evaluated, and results have shown that massages have positively influenced pain, sleep, mental emotions and health.

Research Title: "Lower back pain is reduced ... after massage therapy"

Abstract: A randomized study was made to evaluate the positive effects of massage therapy against relaxation for chronic back pain. In other words the question needing to be answered is if it's better to rest or to receive a massage to reduce pain, anxiety, and insomnia due to lower back pain. 24 adults struggling with back pain for at least a duration of 6 months were "treated" in sessions of 30 minutes, twice a week for five weeks.

Conclusion: The massage therapy group reported feeling much better with less pain, depression, anxiety, and improved sleep. Test results also showed that serotonin and dopamine levels were higher in this group versus the resting group.
