Massage uses therapeutic touch to help soothe soft tissue and encourage relaxation. Many studies show that massage can successfully alleviate a range of disorders including back pain, stress and anxiety and muscle tension. It is frequently recommended as part of a treatment plan for almost all chronic disease states especially cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease and mood disorders.
What is massage?
Massage uses different strokes such as pressing, rubbing and kneading to manipulate the muscles, tendons, ligaments and skin. This is done to promote flexibility and relaxation of the tissues, to release tension and to break the pain cycle.
The application of oil ensures a smooth touch. The addition of essential oils can elevate the results of massage by eliciting a therapeutic response. For example lavender can help relieve headaches.
