In 2010 scientists at Cedars-Sinai investigated the physical effects of massage therapy, finding that the 29 subjects who received 45 minutes of Swedish massage had an immune boosting response when compared to the 24 participants who received 45 minutes of light touch.

Hormonal levels and blood cell count were measured before and after the massage, and at regular intervals up to one hour after the massage was done. "This research indicates that massage doesn’t only feel good, it also may be good for you," explains Dr. Mark Rapaport, chairman of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences.
