Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.
Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved; and physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of Massage Therapy.
Massage will be considered as the manipulation of soft tissues, or movements done upon the body; and therapeutic exercise will be considered as movements to joints, or movements done with part of the body.” McMillan, Mary – Massage and Therapeutic Exercise
Muscle and postural imbalances need to be corrected in order to truly achieve health and wellness. If you alleviate the symptoms, but don’t correct the imbalance, it’s just a matter of time before the symptoms return. It’s essential to eliminate the cause.
Therapeutic exercises are prescribed for the patient to perform either in treatment or at home, or both. Strengthening exercises are used for weak, underused areas. Stretching is used for tight, shortened, overused areas.
