Massage may be defined, in part, as the application of pressure, or vibration to different parts of the body’s soft tissues.
Massage is a skill that can be learned and practiced by most people- the main ingredients in my view, being a desire to learn, as well as to give healing and relaxation to another.
The benefits of massage amongst others are that it can relieve pain, relieve stress, and aid in better circulation.
I will briefly discuss different aspects to massage in this article, and give you an insight into massage.
Massage is an art form that has roots dating back many thousands of years, and has developed into many types today, with recent new development like chair massage, which, as the name suggests, is given to people most typically in an office environment.
This type of massage is given to a person, fully clothed, where some types of massage are given to a person either totally naked, or more commonly, partially covered in the areas where they are not being massaged, both for comfort, warmth, and modesty, not to mention relaxation.
Massage is designed to relieve the built up tensions and stress that can affect many of us from time to time.
Some people literally thrive on stress, where others do well with some, and a few do not handle stress at all.
In all cases, massage can be very healing for just about everyone.
Massage has also been used to help treat many ailments, including pain management, fatigue, muscular problems, and general tension.
It is natural to expect that the training of the massage therapist will make a great deal of difference to the final result on the person being massaged.
Stress is something that is important to help reduce, as over many years, the build up of stress can cause muscle problems, and our body’s no longer functions as well as they could. In some cases, memory and overall health are affected, and it is always beneficial to receive regular massage therapy.
As I mentioned earlier, massage is something that can be learned by most people who are willing and committed to helping others.
The benefits of being able to give a great massage are numerous, including the ability to reduce a person’s muscular pains, help a person to sleep better, increase a person’s sense of health and well being, and detoxify muscles, to name just a few points.
Massage courses are available by accredited associations and instructors around the world, as well as online from various reputable vendors.
I can certainly speak from experience when I say that massage is a great way to help one relax, and is an art form that can be learned, and developed.
To your ongoing success.
Be the best you can be!
