What Is Massage Therapy?

The term massage therapy is used to describe many different methods of using one’s hands or tools to manipulate the muscles, tendons, connective tissues, and ligaments in a person’s body.

massage therapyThere are two major types of massage therapy: relaxation and rehabilitative. Relaxation massages are commonly referred to as Swedish massages and are offered at spas, wellness centers, and resorts for relaxation purposes. Rehabilitative massages—often called deep tissue, medical, clinical, or therapeutic massages—are given specifically to target and treat a variety of health conditions such as back pain, neck pain, sciatica, headaches, and sports injuries.

How Does It Help?

Special training, licensing, and certification is awarded to those who learn relaxation techniques and advanced rehabilitative methods at massage schools. By applying pressure to specific points on your body and releasing tension within your muscles, these therapists stimulate healing, increase muscle elasticity, and release harmful toxins from your tissue. People who are suffering from injuries or recovering from surgery experience less pain after a massage therapy session. Symptoms of depression, anxiety, migraines, and allergies can also show improvement after treatment.
