How Does Massage Therapy Work?

Massage therapy is the physical manipulation of a body’s soft tissue with an aim of medicinal outcomes. Using scientific techniques including moving muscles and tissues, applying pressure with or without movement, a massage therapist can expertly use the body’s natural blood and lymph system to improve circulation, promote healing and remove toxins. Massage, in particular deep tissue massage, can be particularly effective at reducing muscular tension and pain, enhancing tissue regeneration, and a host of other health benefits, such as:

  • inducing relaxation by relieving points of tension and overall stress
  • improving blood circulation and movement of lymph fluids
  • improving posture by changing tension patterns that affect posture
  • reducing and relieving muscle tension, stiffness, and spasms
  • accelerating healing of soft tissue injuries, such as pulled muscles and sprained ligaments
  • discouraging the formation of scar tissue following soft tissue injuries
  • reducing pain and swelling related to injuries
  • relieving tension related headaches and eye strain
  • increasing ease and efficiency of movement
  • increasing joint and limb flexibility
  • promoting deeper and easier breathing
  • enhancing health and nourishment of skin
  • promoting feelings of well-being
  • reducing emotional or physical stress and anxiety
  • increasing awareness of the mind-body connection and improving mental alertness
