Professional massage therapists are trained to manipulate soft-tissues of the body, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints, in order to improve health. In addition to reducing pain, rehabilitating injuries, improving circulation, relieving stress, increasing relaxation, and promoting wellness, it also aids in the general wellbeing of clients.
The therapeutic effects of massage treatment act on the muscles, nervous system, and circulatory system to promote health and well-being. In addition to developing, maintaining, and improving physical function, massage therapy can relieve or prevent physical dysfunction, pain, and stress effects.
Modern massage techniques have their origins in the 1700s with the development of Swedish massage, the first therapeutic massage method based on physiology. A Massage Therapist today uses a combination of traditional Swedish and modern Massage Therapy techniques, as well as exercise and other therapies to treat their clients. Massage Therapy involves various hand movements over the skin or clothing, which are referred to as specialized movements. Massage Therapists will work with your tolerance for pain during the treatment.
