Massage Therapy is a general term covering a variety of disciplines for the manipulation of soft tissue for therapeutic purposes. It involves the practice of kneading or otherwise manipulating muscles or other soft tissue with the intent of increasing circulation and detoxification, reducing physical and emotional stress and increasing general wellness.
The physiological effects of massage can include: The elimination of metabolic wastes; decrease in blood pressure; increase circulation of the lymph fluid; relax or stimulate muscles; relieve tension, stiffness and aches in muscles and joints; help respiratory muscles to relax and to aid deep breathing; improve tone, elasticity and circulation to the skin; help relieve restlessness and insomnia, promote a sense of well-being and help relieve pain.
Massage can also be a powerful mode of non-verbal communication, which in a safe, therapeutic environment allows for emotional release, which may be safely dealt with by an experienced therapist.
