What is Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) which aims to enhance a person's health and well-being.

Massage is known to affect the circulation of blood and lymph, reduce muscular tension, affect the nervous system through stimulation or sedation and enhance tissue healing. These effects provide a number of benefits.

  • Reduction of muscle tension and stiffness
  • Relief of muscle spasms
  • Greater flexibility and range of motion
  • Relief of stress, aids relaxation and promotes a feeling of well-being
  • Improvement of the circulation of blood and movement of lymph
  • Relief of tension-related conditions, such as headaches and eyestrain
  • Promotion of faster healing of soft tissue injuries, such as pulled muscles and sprained ligaments,
    and reduction in pain and swelling related to such injuries
  • Reduction in the formation of excessive scar tissue following soft tissue injuries
