What is Massage Therapy?

It is the manipulation of the soft tissue of the body to gain therapeutic response. Soft tissue includes muscles, skin and connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and membranes. The stretching and loosening of soft tissues and the increased circulation of the blood and lymph result in the removal of waste products and increased oxygen and nutrient supply to body’s cells and tissues. The overall effect is reduced pain and increased range of motion in stiff joints. Treatments can be anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
