What is Massage Therapy?
Massage is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and
ligaments) to enhance health and wellbeing. Massage and bodywork can reduce chronic pain, anxiety,
stress, help improve body alignment, enhance your immune system and increase range of motion
through therapeutic touch and soft tissue manipulation. Massage is generally considered part of
complementary and integrative medicine. It is increasingly being offered along with standard treatment
for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.
Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain
and muscle tension. Massage therapy may be recommended to help people cope with the pain and
stress of cancer, heart disease, stomach problems, fibromyalgia or other conditions.
Benefits of Massage Therapy?
While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage
may also be helpful for:
Insomnia Related to Stress
Myofascial Pain Syndrome
Soft Tissue Strains or Injuries
Temporomandibular Joint Pain
