purposes and goals. Massage therapy can help to relax your stress in many
Massage involves acting on and manipulating the client's body with
pressure (structured, unstructured, stationary, and/or moving), tension,
motion, or vibration done manually or with mechanical aids. Target tissues
may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, or other connective
tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, and/or organs of the
gastrointestinal system. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers,
elbows, forearm, and feet.
Benefits of Therapeutic massage:
The benefits of massage are extensive.
Massage therapy treatments will have a therapeutic affect and improve
health by acting directly on the muscular, nervous, circulatory and
lymphatic (immune) systems.
Massage treatments aim to:
Develop, maintain, rehabilitate or
augment physical function - Massage therapy has become a staple of many
professional athletes’ training regimens. But not just athletes. Lifestyle
factors, such as long work hours or physically taxing tasks, lead many
members of the workforce to seek the assistance of a massage therapist. A
seemingly minor injury can have a profound impact on a person’s ability to
stay physically active, participate fully in life, or even make a living
if it becomes chronic. Massage therapy can be one of the ways of
preventing that kind of outcome.
Relieve or prevent physical dysfunction
and pain - Some massage therapy techniques are specifically recommended
for sore muscle tissues. An overly sore muscle cannot function properly.
Alleviating or preventing pain can combat dysfunction.
Relax tight and tense muscles - Many
people don’t realize how much a tight muscle impacts on vital things such
as posture. A tense muscle can throw off your body’s balance. Before long,
muscles that were not initially tight begin to tense as they compensate
for other parts of the body. It becomes a chain reaction that can spread
far from the initial problem spot. A talented massage therapist can
identify the source of the problem and start working to alleviate the
problem where it started.
Improve circulation, recovery time and
immune system function - The movements of massage cause blood to flush in
and out of muscles and joints. This flushing process - enhancing
circulation in the affected areas - can, in some cases, aid recovery time
Reduce overall stress - We’re all
becoming more aware of the role stress plays in health. People who are
stressed, all other things being equal, are less healthy than people who
are relaxed. Stress, for example, increases the risk of heart disease.
Massage therapy is an effective and enjoyable way to reduce stress.
Massage therapy is also effective in the control of pain, chronic or
acute, in stress reduction, and in creating a sense of relaxation and
well-being. A licensed, skilled practitioner can become an important and
integral part of your health care team. Modalities.
