Massage therapy is a healing art encompassing the assessment and treatment of a wide spectrum of soft tissue and joint disorders. Acting through the muscular, connective tissue (fascia), nervous and circulatory systems to improve physical and psychological health, massage therapy offers effective ways to rehabilitate injuries and shift harmful patterns. Some of the main benefits include pain relief, postural correction, anxiety reduction, increased flexibility, heightened alertness and deep relaxation. Massage therapy is effective and safe for all ages, from infants to the elderly. It is a wonderful complement to any healthcare maintenance regime
The beneficial effects of massage therapy are wide-ranging, addressing all aspects of wellbeing. Ranging from physical through emotional and psychological, examples of benefits include decreased pain and sensitivity, reduction of anxiety and depression, alleviation of post-partum depression and lowered hyperactivity. Massage therapy can, among other benefits, improve immune function, sleep, respiratory patterns and general lung function, attitudes about body image, and circulation.
