The Definition of Massage

The definition of massage is the systematic manipulation of soft body tissue making soft tissue more pliable, promoting circulation and blood flow to bring about physical effects and psychological changes for general well-being. Massage therapy is extremely beneficial to people leading busy lifestyles suffering from work related stress. Massage aids mental relaxation and also works on back and neck pain that comes from sitting for an extended period of time at a desk or from physical labour. Many people wait until they are already in pain or suffering spinal injuries before turning to massage.

It is beneficial, however, to have regular massage as a preventative measure so that such injuries do not
occur. Regular massage maintenance will increase your overall sense of well-being for optimum physical
and mental health, helping you to achieve your goals. Massage is used to treat a wide range of disorders,
such as: Insomnia, muscular tension, headaches and migraines, work related stress, repetitive strain injury, depression, arthritis, eating disorders and digestive dysfunction, pre-natal pregnancy
conditions, fibrositis, spondylitis, frozen shoulder, whiplash and sports and dancing injuries.

All remedial therapies are claimable through HICAPS on the spot.
