The number of papers published on massage using the search terms “massage and clinical trial” and “find all search terms”.
Searching CINAHL and Psycinfo simultaneously in EBSCO gave me these numbers
1990-1999 = 213
2000-2004 = 595
2005-2009 = 1371
These are my numbers. There is no control for “other” types of massage such as cardiac, prostate or other use of rubbing/massage.
A selection team would weed out none MT related uses. How ever in CINAHL and PsychInfo there is, in my experience, less noise in the results than what comes from Medline searches.
This article posted here goes in to detail of the issues around searching for MT research.
