The benefits of massage
Massage therapy is a great way to relieve tension, alleviate muscle stress, improve blood circulation and help treat some muscle injuries and certain disorders, such as insomnia and anxiety. The treatment involves pressing, rubbing and manipulating the skin to loosen and soften the underlying soft tissue, including the muscles, tendons and ligaments. There are several different techniques used in massage, and the therapist may vary from using light stroking to deep pressure, depending on your needs and preferences.
The origins of massage reach back into ancient times and span countless cultures and continents. Archeological references to massage have been be found in civilisations such as ancient Greece, China, India, Rome and Egypt. Today, massage is considered part of complementary and alternative medicine, and it is often recommended in conjunction with contemporary medicine for treatment of a wide range of medical and physiological conditions.
