Massage therapy is well-documented to bring about muscle relaxation as well as increased blood circulation with a deeper massage. As one would expect, deep tissue massage produces an effective increase in blood circulation, meaning a longer dilation of blood vessels observed up to 40 minutes post-massage. Blood flow in certain areas was observed to increase by as much as 42%.

The percentage of adult American consumers who received a massage in 2011 remained the same as in 2010 at 18 percent. The average number of massages obtained increased slightly, however, resulting in a 5 percentage increase in the total number of massages received.
