Simply defined, massage is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance health and well-being.
Massage is often used for specific reasons, such as relief from pain, 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.
