This article talks about an interesting Consumer Reports study on American’s use of alternative therapies.  While the article suggests that people tend to prefer medications for some health conditions it also has the following to say about massage and back pain:

“Chiropractic, deep-tissue massage, and mind-body practices like yoga dominated the list of alternative treatments that respondents said were helpful for back pain, neck pain, and the aches of osteoarthritis.”

“Pilates, yoga, and deep-tissue massage all rated about the same as prescription medication for back pain.”
