Massage assists in the healing of injuries such as tendinitis, ligament sprains or muscle strains. Massage therapy reduces swelling and inflammation by assisting the body in removing waste and providing nutrition to injured cells. In addition massage has been found to be useful in making old scar tissue pliable and reducing its formation in new injuries.
Massage stretches and kneads away muscle tension relieving everything from short term muscle cramps to a habitually clenched jaw or tight shoulders. In addition massage works gently on the nervous system, relaxing the muscles throughout your body.
