How Massage Therapy Works
Massage therapy focuses on the soft tissues surrounding the hard tissues of our body, such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments. If these soft tissues become tight or tense, it can cause discomfort and joint misalignment. Luckily, massage therapy is specifically designed to target and alleviate the stress in these soft tissues, which promotes healing and pain relief. It's no wonder why it's one of the leading therapies sought by patients for any traumatic injury.
One of the reasons massage therapy is so effective is that it can help warm up our muscles, making it easier to loosen up those tight soft muscles. Many massage techniques and soft tissue manipulation involve pressing or rubbing muscles and other soft tissues with hands, fingers, forearms, elbows, and in some variations, feet.
Massage therapy is helpful for a variety of health conditions. Our bodies go through a lot, and massage therapy can help restore balance within the body and mind. Not only does it provide relief from pain, but it also improves our sense of well-being.
