Massage Therapy for Improved Health and Wellness
Massage therapy-the treatment and practice of soft tissue manipulation with physical, functional, and psychological goals-involves massaging a person's body in a way that increases overall wellness. Targeted pressure on the body is usually applied with hands and elbows and is said to have numerous health benefits.
Massage therapy dates back more than 3,000 years. Used by the Chinese, Hindus, Egyptians, Persians, and ancient Greeks, the therapeutic benefits of various types of massage have been documented for centuries.
The Science of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy has been shown to have a wide array of benefits. From anxiety reduction and pain relief to improved circulation, the therapeutic effects of touch promote all aspects of wellness. Essential oils further support the benefits of massage therapy by enabling targeted aromatic and topical relief. Certain oil collections, like Young Living's Raindrop Technique(R), combine the art of aromatherapy with the techniques of Vita Flex-rolling and releasing motions that activate the reflex points-and massage.
Topical application of these specific oils to various areas of the body brings balance and harmony while fostering a truly holistic wellness experience. Here are some commonly used techniques for self-massage:
