What is Massage

Man_relaxingsm-300x199

Massage is the manipulation of muscle and soft tissue that creates relaxation and improved healing times. Massage can be at a superficial or deep muscle level . The approach and extent of massage application can be chosen to suit various objectives such as enhancing functionality, aiding the healing process, and promoting relaxation and well-being.

What it involves

The general procedure involves stimulating the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids, all geared towards physical and psychological wellbeing.

How it Benefits You

Massage therapy is no longer just a means to relax or indulge. In today’s busy lifestyle, it is increasingly becoming a way to maintain one’s health and fitness. Active Physio Health masseurs not only help you achieve the rare and precious mental relaxation, but it also helps to heal physical symptoms such as back and neck pain that can come from routine activities such as prolonged sitting at a desk, or from physical labor.
