I agree wholeheartedly and not from just what I have heard, but from my experience. Because of injuries, I got hooked on pain meds and decided to change my life. I went back to school to be a massage therapist, knowing this had helped me alot. Now, I am 50 and will graduate in May. I finished school in December. Another very interesting thing that I specialized in and took extra classes was child infant developmental massage, and pregnancy massage.  I have so much joy to nurture that young woman about to experience a miracle in her life.  And to give seminars on Child Developmental Massage. You would be amazed at the results of some of these studies.
