Massage can help to relieve psychological stress, improve the mood, manage various levels of pain, relieve a migraine or sinus headache, and improve circulation. When muscle strain is present, caused by a sports injury or some sort of accident, a combination of both cold therapy and massage can have a lot of benefits to minimizing pain and discomfort.
