What is massage therapy?
Massage therapy uses hands-on manipulation of the body’s soft tissues to improve circulation, reduce muscle tension, enhance skin tone, reduce stress, and improve the functionality of the nervous system. While massage therapy can be used for relaxation, it can also help rehabilitate injuries or damage. Massage therapists specialize in and understand the body’s soft tissue and are able to pinpoint specific muscles or causes of injuries.
Understanding Massage Therapy
Massage therapy focuses on the soft tissues in the body, such as the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissues. The massage therapist will use their body to manipulate these tissues, pressing and rubbing them using their hands, fingers, forearms, or elbows. Massage therapists are certified to perform this therapy and have a solid understanding of the body’s soft tissues and how they work both separately and together.
Massage Therapy in Tampa, FL
Many people in various situations can benefit from massage therapy. Those with high levels of stress and those who play sports or have had muscle injuries in the past can benefit from massage. In addition to helping with injuries, massage can also prevent them, keeping the connective tissues limber and flexible. While massage therapy cannot replace medical care, it can help provide relief from symptoms of a variety of conditions like headaches, fibromyalgia, or anxiety. If you think you could benefit from massage therapy, consult with your doctor or massage therapist to determine if this is the best treatment for you.
