Massage therapy is a hands-on manipulation of muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joints. It is a health option to help alleviate soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday stress, muscular overuse and some chronic pain syndromes. Massage therapy works to improve the circulation of blood through the body and to speed the removal of metabolic waste products from muscles and the kneading of muscles and ligaments increases flexibility. People visit a massage therapist to relieve pain, relax, and reduce stress.
