Massage therapy is used to help people control their fitness or improve their overall well-being. It entails handling the body’s soft tissues. San Diego massage and spa have been used in most civilizations throughout human history, both Eastern and Western, and was one of the first instruments used to attempt to alleviate discomfort.

Several studies of massage for low-back pain have found only poor evidence that it could be beneficial, according to science.
