Massage Therapy

Massage is perhaps one of the oldest healing traditions. Many ancient peoples – including the Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Chinese and Indians – were convinced of the therapeutic properties of massage and used it to treat a variety of ailments. 

Massage is generally considered part of integrative medicine. Medical centers are offering it more and more as a treatment along with standard treatment. It may be used for a wide range of medical conditions. Massage therapy helps reduce stress, lessen pain and muscle tension, increase relaxation, and improve immune function.

Massage therapy (including myotherapy) is the practice of kneading or manipulating a person’s muscles and other soft-tissue in order to improve their wellbeing or health. It is a form of manual therapy that includes holding, moving, and applying pressure to the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.

The term ‘massage therapy’ is used to describe a wide variety of techniques that vary in the manner in which touch, pressure and the intensity of the treatment is applied. 

Research indicates that massage and myotherapy are effective in managing: 

  • subacute/chronic low back pain

  • delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)

  • anxiety

  • stress

  • soft tissue injuries

  • high blood pressure

  • insomnia

  • pregnancy

 

They can also be effectively used to support people with:

  • a chronic disease

  • a life threatening illness such as cancer.

  • heightened mental alertness

  • anxiety and depression.
