Massage therapists generally define massage therapy as the manual manipulation of the body’s soft tissues in order to normalize their function. The soft tissues include, skin, muscle, ligaments, fascia and viscera (organs). The manipulation of the body tissues can include mild, moderate or deep pressures. There are many styles of Massage Therapy also known as modalities. The kind of pressure used is determined by the modality being used, the desired effect and the client’s condition and tolerance.
Massage has been shown to have positive effects on stress, anxiety, sleep, muscle function, nervous system, circulation, pain, digestion, general health and wellness.
