What is Massage Therapy?

This unique therapy is one of the world’s oldest healing arts. Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use. On its own, massage is putting pressure on and manipulation of the soft tissues of the body. During massage therapy, massage is performed by a licensed, trained professional. This helps to bring about the many benefits of massage therapy in a guided setting to allow for the best experience. There are many times of massage, and many may be utilized in massage therapy sessions. The type of massage is usually determined based on a patient’s needs and what they are currently dealing with as far as pain, discomfort, and mental health symptoms.

The varied and far-reaching benefits of massage therapy are widely known. Basically, it includes the use of massage for both its emotional and physical benefits combined. Thus, providing mental health patients the opportunity to utilize these benefits in accordance with how they aid their mental health recovery. And, providing patients ways to incorporate holistic therapies into their treatment plans to promote well being and better mental health.


Evidence shows us that massage therapy is supportive in the treatment of both emotional and physical issues. These benefits may vary from patient to patient. Thus, they aren’t a guarantee for everyone who utilizes it.
