What is Massage Therapy?
Massage is one of the oldest, simplest forms of
therapy and is a system of stroking, pressing and kneading different
areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate, and tone the body.
Massage does much more than create a pleasant sensation on the skin, it
also works on the soft tissues (the muscles, tendons, and ligaments) to
improve muscle tone. Although it largely affects those muscles just
under the skin, its benefits may also reach the deeper layers of
muscle and possibly even the organs themselves. Massage also
stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system
(which runs parallel to the circulatory system), improving the
elimination of waste throughout the body.
Some Benefits Of Massage:

The Effects Of Massage:
Although a single massage will be enjoyable, the effects of massage
are cumulative and a course of massage treatments will bring the most
benefits. Regular massage can have the effect of strengthening and
toning the entire body mechanism, and so help to prevent unnecessary
strains and injuries that might otherwise occur due to excess tension
and any resulting structural weaknesses.Massage can stimulate or calm
the nervous system-depending upon what is required by the individual-and
thus help reduce fatigue, leaving the receiver with a feeling of
replenished energy. At its best, massage has the potential
to restore the individual physically, mentally and spiritually.
