What is Therapeutic Massage Therapy?
Therapeutic Massage is the treatment and practice of soft tissue manipulation with physical, functional, and in some cases psychological purposes and goals. Therapeutic Massage involves acting on and manipulating the client's body with pressure (structured, unstructured, stationary, and/or moving), tension, motion, or vibration done manually or with mechanical aids.
Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, and/or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Therapeutic Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, forearm, and feet.
How Therapeutic Massage Can Help You Manage Stress
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Massage, without a doubt, can help manage stress and provide many of the following benefits: decreased anxiety, enhanced sleep quality, greater energy; improved concentration, increased circulation, and reduced fatigue.
Furthermore, clients often report a sense of well being and clarity after receiving a Therapeutic Massage. The emotional balance that bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.
