What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy uses pressure to relieve the body of aches, pains and other physical problems. Depending on the client, their particular ailments and the specific type of massage therapy being applied hands, elbows, forearms and even knees are used as methods of massage.

Like many other holistic treatments, the specifics will vary from practitioner to practitioner. Some businesses will heavily use oils, others won’t, while one therapist may perform their massage with the client sat upright, others will have clients lay down.

Whichever method is used, the target result is usually the same, with a physically refreshed and relaxed client.
