Definition

Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, consisting primarily of manual (hands-on) techniques such as applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and moving muscles and body tissues.

Purpose

Generally, massage is delivered to improve the flow of blood and lymph (fluid in lymph glands, part of immune system), to reduce muscular tension or flaccidity, to affect the nervous system through stimulation or sedation, and to enhance tissue healing. Therapeutic massage may be recommended for children and adults to deliver benefits such as the following:

  • reducing muscle tension and stiffness and spasms

  • increases joint and limb flexibility and range of motion

  • relieving points of tension and overall stress; inducing relaxation

  • promoting deeper and easier breathing and circulation

  • relieving tension-related headaches and eyestrain

  • promoting faster healing of soft tissue injuries

  • reducing pain and swelling related to injuries

  • reducing the formation of scar tissue

  • enhancing health and nourishment of skin

  • improving posture by changing tension patterns

  • reducing emotional or physical stress and reducing anxiety

  • promoting feelings of well-being by increasing awareness of the mind-body connection and improving mental awareness and alertness generally
