Massage therapy appears to significantly reduce pain, anxiety, and muscular tension in elective cardiac surgery patients, according to an Australian analysis. Massage therapy also appeared to improve relaxation and patient satisfaction when compared with resting only. The study team noted that nurses and physiotherapists helped facilitate delivery of the treatment by the massage therapists on the ward.
