Massage therapy involves hands-on stimulation of the soft tissues of the body to increase blood flow and stimulate the healing process. During massage, skin, muscles, joints and connective tissue are manipulated as a means of reducing pain and stress. Massage therapists are trained professionals who use specific techniques to treat various medical problems.
Benefits Of Deep Tissue Massage
Massage therapy is beneficial both physically and emotionally. Massage helps the client by doing the following:
- Releasing chemicals (such as serotonin and endorphins)
- Blocking pain signals
- Reducing muscle stiffness and tension
- Increasing flexibility and range of motion
- Lowering blood pressure
- Reducing stress and anxiety
- Promoting circulation and eliminating toxins
- Speeding up the healing process
As a result, massage therapy promotes health and a sense of well-being. It has a positive effect on nearly all bodily processes, including circulation, lymphatic drainage, and digestion. Massage therapy is often part of a comprehensive program of rehabilitation after orthopedic and other surgeries and is frequently used successfully as part of a pain-management regimen.
