Massage In Cheltenham
What Is Massage
Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are dozens of types of massage therapy methods.
Clients seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons including rehabilitate injuries, relax muscles, reduce pain, help alleviate the discomfort associated with every day and occupational stresses and promote overall health and wellness.
Types of massage therapy
While there are several types of massage, two fundamental categories are:
- Relaxation massage– also known as Swedish massage
- Rehabilitative massage– also known as deep tissue, medical, therapeutic or clinical massage
Massage has a huge number of benefits to all the systems of the body. By massaging and relaxing the muscles there is a domino effect to all the other systems of the body. We also bring about a relaxation that brings the body into homeostasis, a place of balance where the body can repair and renew.
The muscles are the most obvious part of the body to benefit from massage. Massaging muscles will increase flexibility, reduce tightness, tension and toxins and improve muscle tone. It can have a great effect on the skeletal system improving posture and mobility as well as circulation of blood to the bones. It can be used to help lower blood pressure. Massage allows us to switch off, unwind and be at peace for a while.
Overall, massage gives the client a better body awareness and helps to improve their health and well being.
