That massage study

Like everyone else I was quick to jump on the abstract of that massage study at the weekend.  Paul at Save Yourself is a lot more considered and his analysis is first rate.  Nothing against massage - it is good and it works for certain things - but we need to be careful about the science.  Paul's stuff is always well thought out and well researched.  He puts me to shame.

Take the time to read his analysis of the study and the way it has been reported:

Massage reduces inflammation and promotes mitochondria?

Some interesting new scraps of basic biology evidence are scientific miles away from proof of therapy
