What Is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is a system of assessment, evaluation and manual application techniques used in a scientific manner taking into account the muscle locations, stress points and other anatomical considerations of the human body. The purpose of massage is to increase circulation, reduce muscular tension and provide relaxation through the use of pressure applied to the muscles.

It includes adjunctive external application of water, heat and cold, stretching, passive and active joint movement within the normal physiologic range of motion as a means of promoting pain relief, injury rehabilitation or health improvement in a safe, non-sexual environment that respects the client’s self-determined outcome for the session.
