The Art and Science of Massage Therapy
For centuries, the art and science of the practice of massage has been used as a method of therapeutic treatment. A massage is a system of pressing, stroking, and kneading various areas of the body to alleviate pain, promote relaxation, stimulate the healing process, and tone the body. A massage creates a pleasurable skin sensation while working the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Today, massage therapy has become an important therapeutic treatment for millions of people across the world.
Although a massage benefits the deep tissue layers, it can also impact the organs. The manipulation of the muscles and tissues promotes circulation, elasticity, and relaxation, which will enhance the function of the tissues and organs, reduce pain, lower blood pressure, ease tension, and promote overall relaxation and well being. A therapeutic massage can be part of physical therapy or practiced on its own. The overall effect of having a massage is it restores one’s spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical well being.
