The many benefits of massage ...
Many physicians have been recommending massage therapy for nearly 2,400 years. The medical benefits of friction were first documented in Western culture by the Greek physician Hippocrates around 400 BC. Today, massage therapy is being used as a means of treating painful ailments, decompressing tired and overworked muscles, reducing stress, rehabilitating sports injuries, and promoting general health. This is accomplished by manipulating a client´s soft tissues in order to improve the body´s circulation. While massage therapy is done for medical benefit, a massage can be given to simply relax or rejuvenate the person being massaged. Massage therapy is practiced by thoroughly trained individuals who provide specialized care with their client´s medical health in mind.
