Massage is perhaps one of the earliest forms of healing. Most cultures have had some form of massage treatment from the Chinese to the Greeks and the Egyptians.
Massage therapy (including myotherapy) is the practice of kneading or manipulating a person’s muscles and other soft-tissue in order to improve their wellbeing or health. It is a form of manual therapy that includes holding, moving, and applying pressure to the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.
The term ‘massage therapy’ is used to describe a wide variety of techniques that vary in the manner in which touch, pressure and the intensity of the treatment is applied.
Common conditions massage and myotherapy are used for:
