What Is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is an ancient healing practice that has been used for thousands of years to relieve discomfort and improve overall health. A massage involves the use of the fingers, hands, forearms, wrists and sometimes objects to manipulate body tissues. A wide range of massage techniques can be used, including stroking, kneading, tapping, vibration, and pressure to improve blood flow in the area of the body. Some massage techniques are quite vigorous, others involve a lighter, more soothing touch. Different types of techniques may be used to produce different effects. The technique is generally adjusted to fit the individual’s physical and health needs.
Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage can be used to help a number of health problems. The controlled touch helps to improve circulation and releases the body's own natural pain-relieving and healing chemicals. The movements relax muscles and soothe anxiety. It improves nerve function and the production of neurotransmitters in the body. Massage also relieves stress, allowing individuals to feel comforted, connected, and supported.

Massage can reduce both the severity and frequency of headaches. It relieves stress and anxiety. It can improve depression. Some evidence indicates it can lower blood pressure, reduce feelings of fatigue and improve pain from arthritis.
