Massage is the manipulation of the muscles of the body to help improve circulation, increase muscle health and help to reduce pain and discomfort.
The list of benefits that massage can confer on a person's health are numerous:
Repair of soft tissue – Massage can help to relieve the stiffness and pain associated with injuries. Through massage, frozen and clenched muscles can be helped to relax and regain a full range of motion.
Breakdown scar tissue – Scar tissue forms from repeated injury or painful conditions. Massage can help the body naturally remove scar tissue and replace it with muscle and connective tissue.
Improved circulation – By stimulating circulation, blood flow in the muscles and throughout the body can be aided and strengthened.
Increased energy – By relieving the tension in the muscles, the body's energies are able to be reapplied to other, more pleasant activities. The increase in energy can allow patients to enjoy their new-found pain-free movement.
Increased emotional health – Because of the deep relaxation that occurs with massage, the mind is able to relax and emotional tense is released. The quiet meditative state massage gives can help the mind to unwind and relax.
