Massage therapy is an ancient therapeutic treatment, usedfor centuries in many cultures. Today, massage therapy has been shown through extensive research to be an aseffective treatment for reducing stress, relieving muscle pain and stiffness, and as an aid in rehabilitation and the treatment of many diseases and conditions. Research has shown that even a single session of massage therapy can decrease blood levels of the stress hormone cortisol and positively affect other circulating hormones. Massage works primarily by relaxing tight, strained or spastic muscle fibers which may have become sore or painful associated with conditions such as whiplash, tendonitis, headaches, or simply a sore back. Tight or spastic muscles can decrease blood circulation, reducemobility (such as frozen shoulder), or press on nerves(some cases of sciatica). Addressing muscular tension may bring about a significant reduction in discomfort. The benefits of massage are not simply from addressingmuscular problems.
