Edmonton Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is one of the most ancient forms of healing, and has been practiced for thousands of years in all regions of the world. Today massage therapy spans a wide variety of therapeutic approaches, working to improve an individual’s health and well being through hands on manipulation of muscles and other soft tissues of the body. It has been proven beneficial for reducing stress, enhancing blood circulation, decreasing pain, promoting sleep, reducing swelling, and increasing oxygen capacity of the blood. New uses for massage therapy continue to be discovered as scientific research on this valuable healing modality continues.
While there seems to be universal agreement that massage “feels good”, it also offers many specific benefits. The therapeutic use of massage affects all systems of the body, most particularly circulatory, muscular, fascial and nervous systems. Massage therapy is also effective in the control of pain – both chronic and acute, in stress reduction and in creating a sense of relaxation and well being.
