What is Registered Massage Therapy?
Registered Massage Therapy is assessment of the body’s soft tissue and joints and the scientific manipulation of those tissue for the purpose of normalizing them. It consists of manual techniques that include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and/or causing movement of or to the body. Registered Massage Therapy is also effective in helping with the prevention of injury, pain and physical disorders.
Generally, massage is known to affect the circulation of blood and the flow of blood and lymph, reduce muscular tension or flaccidity, affect the nervous system through stimulation or sedation, and enhance tissue healing. Perhaps less known is the effectiveness of massage therapy in treating deeper structures of the body such as ligaments, bones and joints, as well as the fascial system. These effects can provide a number of health benefits.
