Stress is an inevitable part of life. No matter how organized your schedule, laid-back your attitude or carefree your lifestyle, very few people escape stress. The more we learn about the physical effects of stress, the more we begin to understand how important it is to find ways to deal with stress. A soothing massage can help you relax and unwind but that's not all. Massage therapy, with its many therapeutic benefits, can make a significant addition to your health and wellness program.
Massage therapy is recognized as one of the oldest methods of healing, with references in medical texts nearly 4,000 years old. In fact, Hippocrates, known as the "father of medicine," referenced massage in his writings in the 4th century B.C.
Massage therapy refers to the application of various techniques to the muscular structure and soft tissues of the body with fixed or movable pressure. These techniques, friction, kneading, compression and percussion, are applied using primarily the hands, forearms and elbows. Massage is used for the benefit of the musculoskeletal, circulatory-lymphatic, nervous, and other systems of the body. In fact, massage therapy positively influences overall health and well-being.
