Massage therapy has many positive benefits. These benefits include muscular and nervous relaxation. It also helps with blood and lymphatic circulation, eliminates toxins, and stimulates vital organ functions.
The purpose of massage is generally for the treatment of body stress or pain. Massage therapy is usually practiced with hands but can also be done using the feet, elbows, and even knees. Massage techniques can be applied over the entire body or only a single part. It is possible to focus on the skin and muscles and then move deeper towards tendons, ligaments, and fascia or just concentrate on specific points or energy centers.
