The basis of massage is touch.
There is increasing medical evidence showing the value of touch.
Touch is so natural that without it, people can become depressed and
Massage therapy is based
on the fact that the soft tissues .... muscles, tendons, ligaments and
respond to touch. Most pain is soft tissue in origin.
Trigger points ... sensitive points in muscles which radiate or refer
to various parts of the body ... can mimic many conditions.
Muscles not only move our joints, they stabilize them and
they provide armor for the internal organs.
These functions cause more pain than most people realize.
Massage is one of the easiest
ways of attaining and maintaining good health.
It is a healing instinct, natural in all humans, to rub an aching shoulder
or stroke a furrowed brow. Even the most simple form
of massage can have a tremendously comforting effect.
