What is Massage Therapy?

Massage Therapy spans a wide variety of therapeutic approaches, working to improve an individual’s health and well-being through a hands-on manipulation of muscles and other soft tissues on the body. Massage takes many forms, from relaxation to energizing, deep tissue to pressure point, sports massage to lymphatic drainage; The list is endless.

 

What are the key benefits of Massage Therapy?

Physical – Massage Therapy is designed to stretch and loosen muscles, improve blood flow, promote movement of lymph throughout the body, facilitates the removal of metabolic waste resulting from exercise or inactivity and increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to cells and tissue. In addition, massage stimulates the release of endorphins – the body’s natural painkiller – into the brain and nervous system.

Mental – Massage Therapy provides a relaxed state of alertness, reduces mental stress and enhances the capacity for calm thinking and creativity.

 

Is Massage Therapy a luxury?

This perception has rapidly changed as massage has increasingly become accepted as a natural part of a healthy lifestyle. According to one media characterization, “massage is to the human body what a tune-up is to a car”. It provides a physical boost to the weary, sore and stressed.” More and more clinical research confirms that massage reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion, boosts the immune system, and increase endorphins (all may enhance medical treatment).

Take Note: During pregnancy the use of certain essential oils should be avoided. Always consult with your therapist prior to a massage and inform them of any conditions such as heart problems, asthma, high blood pressure, allergies, or any chronic pain.

Everyone! From the very young and the very old to those in between all find that a professional massage can have special applications suited for their needs.
