How do massages help treat psoriasis?

ANSWER

Massage can also ease stress. Let your masseuse know ahead of time about your psoriasis, or find one who has experience working with the condition.

It makes sense to be both optimistic and skeptical when it comes to alternative treatments for psoriasis.

Keep your doctor in the loop about any remedies you try.
