Massage therapy is to work and act on the body with pressure. Massage therapy has been in use for centuries and is a vital component of traditional Chinese medicine. There are many uses for massage therapy, some uses include preventative medicinal treatments as well as curative treatments for muscle and chronic pain. The use of massage is highly flexible with different forms and application methods. Bone massage, trauma massage, pediatric massage, meridian massage, visceral massage, acupoint massage all fall under massage therapy and the uses are vastly diverse. Massage therapy is simple, straight forward and cost efficient with no adverse side effects.
Some mechanisms of Massage therapy are listed below:
- Massage therapy helps to dilate local blood vessels to help increase blood and lymph circulation. As a result, the nutritional status of local tissues is improved, and metabolic rates and retention of body fluids are also amplified.
- Blood flow is stimulated within inner tissues of the human body. The stimulation causes the blood flow from inner tissues to traverse to surface levels of the human body to help reduce stagnant blood flow, and congestion within different areas on the body to dissipate pathological substances.
- Massage therapy helps to improve the overall physical function of the human body. Muscle function, muscle elasticity, tension and durability are all improved with continued sessions of massage therapy.
- Emotional states of wellbeing are also affected by massage therapy. Nerves are massaged to invigorate the spirit, relieve fatigue to soothe and revitalize the mind.
