What is Massage?
Massage is typically considered to be a complimentary or alternative therapy used to treat a myriad of medical conditions. It involves the manipulation of muscles, tendons and ligaments to produce the desired result. It raises the body’s production of endorphins (chemicals believed to improve overall mood) and flushes the waste product lactic acid out of muscles. Massage also promotes recovery from fatigue produced by excessive exercise, breaks up scar tissue loosens mucus in the lungs, promotes sinus drainage, and helps arthritis, colds and constipation.
According to the 2007 National Health Interview Survey, which included a comprehensive survey of CAM use by Americans, an estimated 18 million U.S. adults and 700,000 children had received massage therapy in the previous year.
