LESS STRESS. MORE PLAYING.
Stress has a lot to do with the tension you feel in your shoulders; it can also affect your heart and your blood pressure. Working out muscle tension during a massage makes chronic pain, as well as acute or short-term stress, much easier to let go.
BETTER POSTURE. MORE CONFIDENCE.
That bad posture can quickly become a bad habit – massage loosens muscles and joints to reinforce the body's natural movements.
INCREASED CIRCULATION. MORE RELAXATION.
Muscle tension constricts your circulation – massage helps release those chronically tense and tightened muscles to increase blood flow and help flush toxins out of your body.
What Is Massage Therapy?
The term “massage therapy” includes many techniques, and the type of massage given usually depends on your needs and physical condition.
Massage therapy dates back thousands of years. References to massage appear in ancient writings from China, Japan, India, and Egypt.
In general, massage therapists work on muscle and other soft tissue to help you feel better.
In Swedish massage, the therapist uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration, and tapping.
Sports massage combines techniques of Swedish massage and deep tissue massage to release chronic muscle tension. It’s adapted to the needs of athletes.
Myofascial trigger point therapy focuses on trigger points—areas that are painful when pressed and are associated with pain elsewhere in the body.
Massage therapy is sometimes done using essential oils as a form of aromatherapy.
