These techniques require advanced training and a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology. The muscles must be relaxed in order to effectively perform deep-tissue massage, otherwise tight surface muscles prevent the practitioner from reaching deeper musculature.

Massage therapy is often regarded as an extravagance, a luxury, or an expense awaiting justification. Few actually regard a massage as a viable form of medical treatment and powerful wellness tool.

In the United States, our cultures and societies are ever-so-slowly looking towards a broader range of therapies to contribute to our restoration and general wellness.

We are giving ourselves the permission, in fact the mandate, to look beyond what is often prescribed to us in a more limited allopathic or medical model of care.

We are reaching out of what is familiar and looking to less familiar, but often ancient ways of caring for ourselves and the people we love. If you have not yet started asking yourself if there are options – ask now!  What might I be able to do for myself that address’s my issues and contributes to my own or my family’s wellness?

The Origin Of The Pain!

It is a little known fact that most pain originates in the soft tissues of the body. For instance, headache pain often originates in the subscapularous (upper region of the back) and in the muscles of the head and neck. Lower back pain and sciatica typically originate in the muscles as opposed to signifying a problem in the vertebral disk.

For some conditions, regular massage therapy can even obviate the need for surgery. Carpal tunnel syndrome, for instance, a condition routinely treated with invasive surgery, is one ailment that regular massage therapy may actually correct.

A person that suffers from carpel tunnel feels pain and experiences numbness in the hands and fingers. The genesis of the problem, however, may very well be in the muscles of the head and neck!

Whatever the ailment, or condition, massage therapy embodies the elementary concept that the body’s soft tissues, muscle, fascia, tendons and ligaments respond to touch. Hence, the definition of “therapeutic massage” as the manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress to promote overall health and well being.

The benefits of massage therapy are incalculable considering that massage literally affects every system in one’s body. Aside from feeling good, research indicates that massage reduces stress, lowers heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases circulation, increases lymph flow, aids in elimination of toxins and increases endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers.
