Massage Therapy’s Broad Range of Benefits!

Massage therapy entails the manual treatment of primarily the soft tissues of the body; including muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments, and the underlying joints. Hands-on techniques are applied to address each layer of tissue, to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or relieve pain.

Enhancement of the circulation of lymph fluid, the pliability of the muscular and connective tissue, and the soothing of the nervous system attributes to reduced pain, stiffness, greater ease of movement, and an overall sense of well being. Research demonstrates that Massage Therapy also benefits mental health; alleviating symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression.

Massage Therapy’s Role

Specifically, the target of numerous massage techniques is skeletal muscle, and it’s neighbouring connective tissue. Both acute and chronic muscle overload can cause muscular strain, spasm, and myofascial trigger points. The latter are hyperirritable points within a muscle that can elicit pain both locally and/or along nerve pathways to more distant sites. The surrounding fascia (connective tissue) is also affected; often thickening or adhering to the adjacent muscles below. This in turn will restrict the range of motion of the joints that the muscles surround, which will lead to additional wear, tear, pressure and pain to those structures.

This chain of events when left unchecked can contribute to acute and chronic injuries that may have been prevented. Balancing muscle groups via relaxing and lengthening those that are tight or restricted will conversely allow the weak and inhibited muscles to work more effectively. Myofascial techniques release taut and adhered connective tissue, improve blood flow, tissue health; enabling normal muscle function and joint movement.

What to Expect

Techniques are best applied directly to the skin. You will be covered with a sheet and blanket, with just one area at a time uncovered. That being said, your comfort is vital and respected; so you may leave on whatever clothing you wish. Further, all areas treated is under your consent. The treatment plan will outlay this specifically. The amount of pressure used, again is guided by you. The massage therapist will ask you periodically if the pressure being used is suitable. This can vary widely both individually, and given different conditions. Giving honest feedback will allow for the most effective treatment.
