Massage is the manipulation of layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance the function of body and help promote relaxation and a state of well-being.
Medical research has shown that the benefits of massage include pain relief, reduced anxiety and depression, stress relief, temporarily reducing blood pressure and heart rate. It is believed that by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, massage therapy may stimulate the release of endorphins and serotonin helping the body to relax. Clinical studies have also shown that other benefits include the possibility in the prevention of fibrosis or scar tissue, increasing the flow of lymph, and improving sleep.
