Massage therapy is the manipulation & assessment of soft tissues & joints of the body to affect a therapeutic response in the treatment & prevention of physical dysfunction. It can be used as preventive or restorative, to helping maintain, rehabilitate, augment physical function or relieve pain.
Massage therapy has strongly established its role as a clinically-oriented health profession used to relieve a variety of discomforts with undeniable results. Massage can help alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday stress, muscular overuse & many chronic pain syndromes.
If applied early enough after injuries involving trauma,
massage therapy can greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning.
