What is massage therapy?
Massage therapy affects all systems of the body, most particularly circulatory, muscular, fascial and nervous systems. It is also effective in the control of pain – both chronic and acute, in stress reduction and in creating a sense of relaxation and well being. A trained massage therapist focuses on the normalization of the soft tissues affected by stress, injury and illness through the use of manual techniques that improve circulation, enhance muscular relaxation, relieve pain, reduce stress, enhance immune function or promote health and well-being.
You don’t need to be injured or in pain to experience massage, it can be used as a tool to help facilitate your general well being. Many people seek massage therapy regularly to help them perform at their best and feel positive about themselves.
An increasing number of clinical research studies show massage reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion and increases endorphins (enhancing medical treatment). Therapeutic massage can also hasten and lead to a more complete recovery from exercise or injury.
