Massage therapy by definition is the manipulation of soft tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s mental and physical health. There are many types of massage therapy methods also called modalities. Just to name a few.
Massage therapy has a long history in many countries around the world and is one of the oldest natural remedies to relieve pain and improve the well-being of a person. Nowadays people use many different types of massage therapy for a variety of health related purposes. One of my favorite things about massage is that it helps to boost your mental and physical health. Massage therapist primarily work on muscles and connective tissue, involving a variety of movements, compressions, stretching and manipulation of the soft tissue. A massage session can also include hot or cold elements.
