Melissa Feima, Registered Massage Therapist RMT
Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of soft tissue of the body for the purpose of normalizing those tissues. When tension and spasm exist in soft tissue it hardens the body causing discomfort and pain. Manipulation of the soft tissue can release this tension increasing range of motion of the limbs and spine.
Massage increases circulation of the blood and lymph system, reduces muscular tension or flaccidity, stimulates or sedate the nervous system, and enhances tissue healing. It can promote faster healing of soft tissue injuries (pulled muscles and sprained ligaments) and reduces pain related to such injuries. It nourishes the skin, improves posture and reduces stress held in the body.
Massage therapy is applied directly on the skin. The amount of pressure can be adjusted to match your specific needs. It can be used to promote a general relaxation, and/or release chronic patterns of muscular tension. It increases awareness of mind-body connection, reduces anxiety, and promotes a relaxed state of mental awareness.
