Massage Therapy is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues, using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibit motor-neuron excitability, and promote relaxation and well-being.
The Benefits of Massage
As published by Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals
Massage Therapy Is Most Beneficial with Regular Sessions
The more consistent you are with receiving massage, the more your body, mind, and spirit will benefit. Engaging in this form of regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you will look and feel in the years to come. Budgeting time and money for bodywork at consistent intervals is truly a wise investment in your health. Massage feels wonderful, pampering, and lavish. And, it is also medically beneficial. So, be sure to include massage as an essential part of your integrative medical program, and schedule an appointment with a Santa Cruz massage therapist at Peoples Integrative Medicine.
