What is Massage Therapy?

A form of body manipulation in which practitioners manipulate muscle and connective tissue to enhance function of those tissues and promote relaxation and well-being. Massage therapy improves circulation by bringing in oxygen and other essential and necessary nutrients to body tissues. Relieves muscle tension and pain, increases flexibility and mobility, helps clear lactic acid and other waste and reduces pain and stiffness in muscles and joints.
