What is Therapeutic Massage?
Massage is a manual manipulation of the body's soft tissue for the purpose of stimulating circulation and promoting relaxation. It has been used in many world cultures for more than 4,000 years. Massage allows you a quiet time to focus on yourself and become more connected to your body. Massage is generally used for the reduction of stress and pain. It has been shown to boost the immune system as well. Since most diseases are exacerbated by stress, massage can help you become and stay healthier.
