What Is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy uses the benefits of touch to improve healing, relieve tension, and promote a higher level of physical and mental well-being. Massage involves the manipulation of soft tissues of the body, increasing blood flow to areas and stimulating the production of natural chemical compounds. It has been found to be a helpful adjunct therapy for many types of injuries and painful conditions. Massage therapy can use a range of different techniques to produce different effects, which makes it a valuable therapy for many types of health problems.
One of the most commonly used massage techniques, Swedish massage, uses gentle pressure and variety of strokes, such as kneading, stroking, circular movements, and tapping for relief of tension and an energized feeling.
Deep Tissue Massage
