Massage


Massage is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance the function and promote relaxation and well-being.

Massage involves acting on and manipulating the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, and feet. There are over eighty different recognized massage modalities. The most cited reasons for introducing massage as therapy have been client demand and perceived clinical effectiveness.

In professional settings massage involves the client being treated while lying on a massage table, sitting in a massage chair, or lying on a mat on the floor. The massage subject may be fully or partly unclothed. Parts of the body may be covered with towels or sheets.

Massage is now considered mainstream by people of all ages, but the biggest increase in popularity in recent years has been among consumers age 45 and older, reports the AMTA. Aging baby boomers are discovering that massage relieves muscle and joint pain, allowing them to continue favorite activities like tennis or golf. For this group, massage can be tied into regular health maintenance. Among the 65 and older crowd, more than 50 percent are getting massage as part of a physical therapy program.

Everyone needs relief from the daily stresses that wear down the body. One way to address this idea is to offer a variety of services that are easily obtained, relatively inexpensive and provide consumers with a feeling that they are doing something special for themselves. A 60-minute massage is a great way to introduce someone to the benefits.
