Many of today’s health problems can benefit from massage therapy because the manipulation of soft tissues affects so many of our bodily systems. The benefits of a massage will directly affect the muscular, nervous, circulatory, and immune systems.
Massage treatments aim to:
- Develop, maintain, rehabilitate, or augment physical function
- Relieve or prevent physical dysfunction or pain
- Relax tight and tense muscles
- Improve circulation, recovery time, and immune system function
- Reduce overall strength
Keep in mind that massage therapy is also effective in the control of pain, chronic or acute.
