Therapeutic massage has grown into the art of creating and maintaining the best possible health for its devotees. It does this by relaxing, stimulating and invigorating mind and body.
The most common-and most effective-use of massage is to relax the body and mind and so relieve the strains and tension of daily life. It is also used to treat people with circulation problems and heart disorders. Massage can ease the kind of back pain and neck pain people frequently suffer from at the end of a working day. Athletes, sportsmen and dancers can also benefit from massage, which eases the stiffness. On a psychological and emotional level, its calm and soothing effects have helped people plagued by anxiety or depression. However, massage is not suitable for people who suffer from phlebitis, thrombosis, varicose veins or any form of fever. In such cases you should consult your doctor before undergoing massage.
