Therapeutic Massageis the manipulation of soft tissue to restore normal systemic and functional use of muscles, fascia, body fluids, etc. It can be used to assist in the treatment of most musculoskeletal and associated problems, and regular massage results in improved circulatory, lymphatic and neurological functioning.
Massage gives you a roadmap of stress areas in your body. Many times people don't know how much stress they are carrying until they have a massage; then they are able to feel it and let go of it. As the muscles and connective tissues are loosened and stretched, stress and muscular tension are released. Once you have an awareness of where stress lodges in your body, you can begin to educate yourself, retrain your body, and reverse a negative cycle.
Therapeutic Massage can be stimulating or soothing, depending on the technique, depth and speed. Today, given the high levels of stress under which many people live, Therapeutic Massage is not only a highly beneficial therapy, but also one of the healthiest options to improving one's quality of life.
