Massage therapy involves manipulating the soft tissues of the body with varying degrees of pressure and movement. It has several different subcategories. Some are intended to relieve tension or stress whereas some others are specifically meant for the treatment of injured muscles. The end goal is always to nurse the individual back to good health and to help him or her embark on a path of well-being.
These therapies have been proven to have a wide range of health benefits and can be performed either individually or in combination with other forms of treatment.
