The Benefits of Massage Therapy

The classical definition of massage therapy is "to stroke, knead, tap and vibrate as means of application of a scientific system of activity to the muscular structure to improve muscle tone and circulation."

In English, massage therapy of a truly therapeutic nature gives a client more than just a fleeting good feeling. A true therapist is an experienced and duly licensed professional that combines medical knowledge with the artistry of proper touch to produce in a client a long lasting and thorough feeling of mental, physical and psychological relaxation.

Massage therapy has been recognized by medical science and governmental agencies as a true science with a definite and quantifiable skill set. Anyone wishing to become a massage therapist of a therapeutic nature must complete a licensing program which is overseen by the state government. This licensing procedure, which will be further discussed below, requires that anyone wishing to perform massage therapy must pass a certain level of mental, physical, medical, and experience requirements.

Therapeutic forms of massage are also recognized by many insurance companies as a viable medical procedure, and as such is covered by some policies. Contact your insurance company to see if your plan includes receiving a Therapeutic Massage.
Massage therapy of a therapeutic nature reorganizes the body to better function. The art of massage therapy is returning the body to as close to its natural state as can be done without surgery or other invasive techniques. This is done through a scientific application of pressure, tapping, kneading, and stroking the muscular structure of the body.
The Benefits of Massage Therapy
  • Massage therapy differs from a simple massage in that the method of application is scientific, not random, and the massage therapist is attempting to elicit a very ordered, precise response.
  • The body is, if nothing else, a large and incredibly complex series of connections. The better and more in tune these connections are with each other, the better that the body will function.
Many other therapies and medical procedures attempt to fix only one part of the body at a time; however, this type of medical procedure is treating only a final symptom, an aftereffect of a bodily dysfunction that was finally large enough to elicit a negative response in a patient. However, no system of the body works in a vacuum.

For example, the immune system depends on the digestive system to remove toxic foods which may contain bacteria and overload white blood cells. The digestive system depends on the muscular system to provide the strength to remove these toxic entities quickly. The muscular system depends on the cardiovascular system to provide the energy for sustained effort. And so on and so forth. Massage of this type works by attending to all of the systems of the body at once - to the system as a whole, not just one at a time.

Massage therapy is a first therapy for many conditions, and has been known to save time, money, and potentially uncomfortable situations, as well as potentially risky medical operations.

Massage in therapeutic form has been known to heal many conditions in all types of patients. It has also been shown to increase weight gain in premature infants. In adults, massages of a therapeutic nature have been proven to slow the heart rate, deepen the breathing, reduce blood pressure, and increase the instance of positive immune system properties in the body.

Scientific research also shows that massages that are therapeutic increase the mind-body connection, as a verifiable effect of massage therapy is increased ability on both physical and mental tasks. Because the therapeutic form of massage has these effects on the body, it has been known to improve high blood pressure, heart palpitation, arthritis, muscular stiffness, immune system deficiencies, and many other conditions. Those patients that receive massages of a therapeutic nature on a regular basis also report less injuries during their daily activities, and increased productivity and focus in their daily tasks.
