Massage is defined as the scientific manipulation of soft tissue that produces both a physiological and a psychological effect. Skilful massage will produce relaxation whilst maintaining and stimulating the body’s system into greater efficiency. Tight, hard muscles produce muscular tension and require the calming, soothing effects of massage to relieve this common problem.
There are long-term benefits from regular massage treatments including improved vitality and general well being. Massage can be effective at reducing tension and pain, however if there is a more serious condition then it is best to consider having Chiropractic treatment for the area, and to have massage to help keep the muscles relaxed.
