What is Massage Therapy?
This isn't your standard spa massage, massage therapy is a form of treatment that gets the body working the way it should through massage techniques. In a basic sense, massage therapy is used to relax and reset muscles in the body, so they operate the way they should.
Instead of simply trying to relax the muscles of the body, massage therapy can have a variety of more specific intentions. For example, a lymph node massage is designed to increase the flow of the lymph nodes in the body which are used to regulate the body's immune system and fight off infections and disease.
Another example would be a scar tissue massage, which helps improve energetic flow as well as function in muscles to resolve various issues resulting from scar tissue that might interfere with numerous functions of the body.
What are the Benefits to Massage Therapy?
Therapeutic massage is one of the best ways of healing and calming the mind and body. The many benefits of massage therapy include increased relaxation, alleviation of muscle soreness, greater mobility of joints, decreased muscle tightness, and improved circulation. A gentle massage can also lower blood pressure and heart rate, which helps patients reach a state of ease. No matter what type of pain or tension you have, a soothing massage will help you free yourself of stress, which can help you sleep better and enjoy a more positive mood; who doesn't want that?
