One of the old­est, sim­plest forms of ther­a­py is Mas­sage. By stroking, press­ing and knead­ing dif­fer­ent areas of the body not only can you relieve pain, relax, stim­u­late, and tone the body you can do so much more. Mas­sage also works on the soft tis­sues (the mus­cles, ten­dons, and lig­a­ments) to improve mus­cle tone. Although it large­ly affects those mus­cles just under the skin, its ben­e­fits may also reach the deep­er lay­ers of mus­cle and pos­si­bly even the organs them­selves. Mas­sage also stim­u­lates blood cir­cu­la­tion and assists the lym­phat­ic sys­tem (which runs par­al­lel to the cir­cu­la­to­ry sys­tem), improv­ing the elim­i­na­tion of waste through­out the body.

A sin­gle mas­sage will be enjoy­able, the effects of a mas­sage are cumu­la­tive and a course of mas­sage treat­ments will bring the most ben­e­fits. Reg­u­lar mas­sage can have the effect of strength­en­ing and ton­ing the entire body mech­a­nism, and so help to pre­vent unnec­es­sary strains and injuries that might oth­er­wise occur due to excess ten­sion and any result­ing struc­tural weak­ness. Mas­sage can stim­u­late or calm the ner­vous sys­tem and reduce fatigue, leav­ing the receiver with a feel­ing of revi­tal­ized ener­gy. At its best, mas­sage has the poten­tial to restore the indi­vid­u­al phys­i­cal­ly, men­tal­ly and spir­i­tu­al­ly.
