The word massage derives from the words ‘mass’ and ‘massa’, Portuguese and Arab meaning to touch or handle. Massage is one of the oldest healing arts. Everybody can massage, and most of us already do so without even knowing it. When you rub your hands together, you’re doing massage. When you’ve stubbed a toe, and rub it better, or rub a baby’s back, you’re doing massage. Massage is a natural thing to do, and the effects of massage promote health in a very natural way.
Massage can help everybody in numerous ways:
Stress Reduction: With current day living we tend to live hard working, hurried lives and stress can accumulate in our bodies in various ways, including neck, shoulder and back pain. Massage therapy identifies those areas and helps reduce muscle tension, as well as the overall level of stress and tension in the body.
Pain Relief: People with arthritis, whiplash, neck or back injuries and even those unfortunate enough to be involved in car accidents can all benefit from massage. Different massages relieve the different kinds of pain experienced. Massage can also benefit those suffering from anxiety and depression.
