Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for therapeutic purposes. It involves applying pressure, tension, vibration or motion to the body’s muscles and soft tissues, typically using the hands, fingers, elbows, or other specialized tools. Massage therapy can be used to relieve pain, reduce stress, improve circulation, increase range of motion, and promote relaxation and overall wellness. There are many different types of massage, including Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, sports massage, hot stone massage, and more. Each type of massage has its own unique techniques and benefits, and can be tailored to meet the specific needs and preferences of the individual receiving the massage.
