About Massage Therapy
The medical benefits of “friction” were first documented in Western culture by the Greek physician Hippocrates around 400 BC.
Today, massage therapy is used to:
- Reduce stress
- Treat painful ailments
- Promote general health
- Rehabilitate sports injuries
- Decompress tired and overworked muscles
This is done by manipulating the soft tissue muscles of the body in order to improve circulation and remove waste products from the muscles.
Clients may seek massage for medical benefit or for relaxation purposes, and there is a wide range of massage treatment available to meet these distinct needs. Massage therapy that aims to improve physical health typically differs in duration and technique from massage that is intended to simply relax or rejuvenate clients.
