Massage therapy is the art of relaxing muscles and relieving pains through gentle manipulations of the muscles; tendons and ligaments that helps to release stress from the nervous system, improve the circulation, relieve pain, and promote relaxation.
Massage has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and wellbeing by working the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved, and physical dysfunction such as pain can be relieved or prevented through the use of Massage Therapy (College of Massage Therapists of Ontario).
