Massage Therapy is treatment given by stroking, kneading, and striking certain muscular parts of the body to improve sooth the nerves, and stimulate the digestive organs. Massage therapy constitutes a health care service for therapeutic purposes where manual techniques are applied and may include adjunctive therapies with the intention of positively affecting the health and well-being of the individual. Massage increases the circulation of blood and flow of lymph, helps loosen contracted, shortened muscles, and can stimulate weak, flaccid muscles to improve posture and promote movement that is more efficient. In addition, massage helps with tissue elasticity to connective tissues that surround and support the muscles to improve range of motion and to reduce spasticity.
Other benefits of the service may include decreased contractures, prevention of decubitis, decreased muscle spasms, improvement of posture and balance, and decreased fatigue. Massage therapy may increase, or help sustain, an individual’s ability to be more independent in the performance of activities of daily living; thereby, decreasing dependency upon others to perform or assist with basic daily activities.
