What Is Massage Therapy
Massage is the manipulation of the muscles and fascia (connective tissue) using the hands and other tools to release tension and correct improper muscle firing to alleviate pain and correct imbalances in the body. Through a variety of techniques, such as deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy, overactive or injured muscles are encouraged to heal and function properly to allow the musculoskeletal and other body systems to operate optimally.
Take, for example, those who sit for long periods of time at a desk. Remaining in a seated position causes different muscles to become overactive and tight, such as the hip flexors, calves and chest. When this happens, their opposite muscles–the low back/glutes, shoulders and feet–become loose and weakened, and these imbalances cause common ailments such as low back pain, shoulder and neck pain and plantar fasciitis. Massage therapy is a fantastic tool in loosening the tense muscles and restoring balance to the body to relieve such pain.
