Therapeutic Massage

 

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 involves working and acting on the body with pressure. Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, joints, or other connective tissue. Medical research has shown that the benefits of massage include pain relief.

The Goal

 

The goal of massage in the clinical setting is to relieve pain, reduce muscle spasm and increase circulation which helps the body provide the necessary components the body uses to repair injuries. Additionally, massage is used in conjunction with physical therapy to help improve the tolerance to and advancement of exercises and daily activities.
