Massage therapy is used for a range of reasons that all center around wellness, or well-being. Because the word "massage" is defined as a physical action, specifically to "rub and knead muscles and joints," people tend to think massage therapy is solely used to relieve physical pain or to rehabilitate sports injuries. However, massage therapy has an effect on internal stress as well, whether that is to reduce anxiety and depression, or to increase relaxation. The word "therapy" alone is defined as a treatment to relieve or heal.

When we experience feelings of fear, worry, and anxiety, one common physiological change occurs: our muscles tighten. Muscle tension is a natural reflex reaction to stress, it is the body's way of guarding against potential injuries and pain - think of the fight or flight response. Although it is a natural cycle (muscles release the tension when the stress passes), it is important to determine when your body is crying for help.

Physical and mental pain are interconnected to each other for it is located in one body, with one mind. That is to say, it makes perfect sense to treat your mental pain caused by external stressors, through physical healing. Massage therapy helps release endorphins (your body's natural "feel good" chemical), alleviating depression and anxiety. It also releases serotonin and dopamine, resulting in feelings of calm relaxation, appropriate for both chronic and short-term stress making it much easier to overcome.
