Massage Information:

Massage involves working and acting on the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary or moving – tension, motion or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Target issues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, joints or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearms or feet.
