Massage therapy is one of the oldest known modalities of holistic care. It is a form of positive touch that is directed towards the manipulation of soft tissue and joints in the body (including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, lymphatic vessels, & internal viscera) for therapeutic processes.
There is a variety of effective and specific techniques which may include effleurage, pressure points, trigger point therapy, stretching, deep tissue massage, passive/active release, myofascial release and craniosacral therapy.
Massage can be applied to a single part of the body or the whole body using deep or light pressure in order to promote healing, manage pain, decrease blood pressure, relieve stress, improve circulation, increase range of motion and flexibility to improve the overall function of the body’s connective tissues/muscles and to help achieve an overall feeling of well-being.
