Massage has been practiced as a healing therapy for centuries in nearly every culture around the world. It helps relieve muscle tension, reduce stress, and evokes feelings of calmness. Particular massage techniques may either stimulate or calm the body's muscles and tissues to create a desired effect. Although massage affects the body as a whole, it particularly influences the activity of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems. For centuries, human touch has been shown to be emotionally and physically healing. Massage enhances well being by stimulating the release of endorphins (natural painkillers and mood elevators) and reducing levels of certain stress hormones.
In some cultures, massage is accepted as an essential part of well-being and to maintain general health. At Providence Rehabilitation Centre, Massage Therapy is used by athletes to keep their bodies in good shape, while others may enjoy Massage Therapy for its relaxing and psychological benefits.
