The most common type of massage is Swedish massage therapy. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. And it may even help after an injury
Therapeutic massage is best for the targeting of painful, stiff "trouble spots" in your body. It uses slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. Though less rhythmic than other types of massage, deep tissue massage can be quite therapeutic -- relieving chronic patterns of tension and helping with muscle injuries, such as back sprain.
The longterm effects of stress can take emotional and physical tolls. Massage therapy may relieve stress & conditions associated with it, such as tension headaches
Medical research indicates that massage therapy can help boost the immune system by increasing the activity level of the body's natural "killer T cells," which fight off viruses
Research suggests that symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression (all associated with mental health) may be directly affected with massage therapy.
