Massage therapy can help many chronic conditions. When it comes to diabetes massage therapy is very useful because it increases circulation in the limbs. It also helps the skin recover, by increasing circulation in the skin itself. Therefore, massage therapies can not only identify sore muscles, but can also help people with diabetes to get better circulation in their legs, and in their toes.

Finally, massage therapies can identify if there's any problems such as sores or ingrown nails in people's feet. So even foot massage is good for diabetes but when possible, a whole body massage is very good and effective for diabetes and for a person as a whole.
