Massage therapy is the hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body focusing on muscles, tendons, ligaments and sometimes even the mobilization or movement of joints. The purpose of massage therapy is to first of all, make our clients feel better but massage therapy helps to improve blood flow and reduce muscular tension and it reportedly helps to enhance tissue healing and reduce anxiety and stress.
Current day massage techniques have a history dating back thousands of years to ancient cultures who believed it had medial benefits. The first records of massage therapy were found in China and Egypt. The practice of using touch as a healing method derives from customs and techniques rooted in ancient history. Civilizations in the East and West found that natural healing and massage could heal injuries, relieve pain, and prevent and cure illnesses. What’s more, it helped reduce stress and produce deep relaxation.
