Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues for the purpose of normalizing muscles and systems of the body.
Massage can improve the flow of blood and lymphatic fluids to reduce muscular tension and lactic acid.
While massage therapy is applied primarily with the hands, sometimes the forearms or elbows are used. Massage is designed to affect the nervous system through stimulation or sedation, and to enhance tissue healing.
These techniques affect the muscular, skeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, nervous, and other systems of the body. The basic philosophy of massage therapy embraces the concept of "aiding the ability of the body to heal itself."
