Massage therapy consists of a variety of hands-on techniques which are used to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. These tissues include the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joints.
Massage therapy treatment is used to develop, maintain or rehabilitate physical function. An array of discomforts stemming from stress, muscular overuse and many chronic pain syndromes can be relieved and prevented through the use of massage therapy. Massage therapy has therapeutic effects on the body as it acts on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems.
