Massage Therapy : What Is a Therapeutic Massage?


Hi, I’m Sundae with Natural Sundae and if
you’re wondering what a therapeutic massage is I can tell you what it is. Now a massage
by nature is very therapeutic. It’s therapeutic and healing for all the wonderful parts that
comprise you. It is healing for your physical body, which is the body that we see, for our
mental capacity and for our emotional capacity as well. It’s also referred to as a holistic
therapy because it treats the body as a whole being. Now it’s very therapeutic on our physical
bodies for many reasons. Some of the first and most important reasons are it increases
circulation, it increases flexibility, mobility, range of motion. It decreases muscle pain
which is one of the most important reasons why people come for a massage. It increases
your endorphins which are hormones that make you feel nice and good and positive, and it
decreases that stress hormone, that’s released whenever we are stressed out which these days
is a lot for most of us. But massage is great for just that reason, it has so many wonderful
effects for our physical bodies. Now when our bodies are feeling good that means our
minds are able to concentrate on other things, are able to be sharper, have greater capacity
for memory and focus, concentration, mental clarity and performance. They all shoot right
through the roof when we’re not feeling pain. So that definitely increases our mental capacity.
And then massage is very therapeutic for our emotional beings as well, I know when we’re
pain free and when we have mental clarity, we feel nurtured and warm and comforted. Massage
is a wonderful and soothing and calming thing for our emotions, just the mere fact of touching
someone brings calm and warmth and a soothing feeling. Now massage is wonderful because
it reduces frustration and irritation. It improves your mood and it makes you feel loved
and wanted and supported. So massage is a very therapeutic therapy, wonderful for all
the parts of you. I am Sundae with Natural Sundae.
