Massage involves the direct application of specific contacts to the tissues in order to create a desired change. The tissues targeted are the muscles, but also the fascia, ligaments, skin and the peripheral nervous system. The often desired change is to decrease obvious muscular tension and its associated pain, free up restrictive fascia, affect posture and improve joint range of motion.
There are many different massage techniques used in different applications ranging from visceral manipulation to trigger point therapy, dry needling and deep tissue massage. The clinical benefits of massaging are brought about by increasing the circulation of the area being massaged, increasing the temperature through friction and pressure and also increasing the drainage of the area. It is also believed to block pain perception (nociception) cause the release of serotonin and endorphins (feel good neurotransmitters) and break down scar tissue.
