Massage therapy means many things to many people. In fact, a recently published scholarly article identifies more than 80 different styles of massage, many of which have been developed in the past 30 years! There are many different types, including relaxation massage, deep tissue, Swedish, sports massage, and more.
Regardless of the style, the core principles of massage are the same. Massage is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments) to enhance health and wellbeing.
Massage is often used for specific reasons such as pain relief, stress reduction, or enhancement of athletic performance. But whether there is a specific goal or not, massage therapy tends to increase the general health and well-being of the recipient.
