Massage is the manipulating of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, and promote relaxation and well-being. Massage therapy can help with relaxation for both the mind and the body. Reasons for massage therapy may include relaxing muscles, lowering stress and anxiety levels, reducing pain, rehabilitating after an injury, or simply improving overall health and wellness. Massage is not just for relaxing tight muscles. It is becoming more and more popular as an effective treatment for medical conditions both directly and in conjunction with other treatments.
