What is massage therapy? The concept is to obtain its integrity and repattern tissue through manual manipulation regardless if you seek Swedish or Deep tissue.  Understanding the purpose of each massage technique applied while identifying the appropriate techniques-for that muscle or its group-is best for optimal health.

There are two beneficial effects of massage in the body:

 

  • Mechanical effects are the direct physical effects of the massage techniques on the tissues being manipulated. 

  • Reflexive effects are indirect responses to touch that affect body functions and tissues throughout the nervous or energy systems of the body.
