MORE THAN JUST MUSCLES
Massage therapy is a hands on manipulation of the tissues of the body, these tissues are generally the muscles and connective tissue in order to enhance your health. Massage Therapy is based on modern concepts of anatomy, including a wide variety of modalities that go beyond the original framework of Swedish massage.
Massage has been shown to increase the body's production of pain-killing endorphins and the mood-altering hormone serotonin. It can also slow the release of the stress hormone cortisol. Tense muscles that may also compress blood vessels and stretch nerves, restricting blood flow and causing pain. As the affected area is massaged, the muscles gradually release their stranglehold on the irritated nerves, and the pain eases. The same mechanisms also make massage helpful in the recovery process for an injured muscle.
