What is Massage?

Massage uses a combination of movements to manipulate soft tissue and particularly muscles. It can be relaxing, stimulating, or used for rehabilitation purposes.

Massage improves circulation, reduces stress, aids lymphatic flow, and improves flexibility by releasing tension in muscles through stretching, kneading, compressing, or working indirectly on the nervous system.

Massage can get rid of toxins and waste through the lymph, which can help in alleviating sore muscles and bringing fresh blood and nutrients to the muscles themselves.

Muscles that are tight can press on nerves which causes pain, tingling or numbness. By relaxing these muscles, problems can be improved, alleviated or eradicated completely.
