Massage therapy is the assessment and manipulation of soft tissues and joints of the body to effect a therapeutic response in the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction.
It can be preventative or restorative, helping to maintain, rehabilitate, augment physical function or relieve pain.
Massage therapy has firmly established its role as a clinically–oriented health option used to relieve a variety of discomforts because it achieves undeniable results.
Massage can help alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday stress, muscular overuse and many chronic pain syndromes. If employed early enough after accidents involving trauma and injury, massage therapy can greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning.
