Massage therapy involves the manipulation of soft tissue structures of the body to alleviate muscle tension, relieve stress and help the body recover from in jury. When muscles are overworked or injured, waste products such as lactic acid can build up, resulting in soreness, stiffness or muscle spasms. Massage serves to improve circulation, which increases blood flow bringing fresh oxygen to body tissues. This can speed up the elimination of waste products, thus promoting healing and recovery from injury.
