Myofascial Release Therapy (MFR)

Massage Therapy

In general, massage is a practice of rubbing and kneading the body using the hands. During massage therapy, a trained physical therapist or occupational therapist will apply a wide variety of pressures, movements, and techniques to manage a health condition or enhance wellness.

In most common massage therapy, the therapist applies gentle or strong pressure to the muscles and joints of the body. It involves manipulating the soft tissues of the body. As a result, the patient gets great relief from the pain and tension. Massage therapy can be highly effective in the treatment of conditions like lower back pain, neck & shoulder pain, headaches, and osteoarthritis of the knee.

Studies show that massage therapy gives many benefits. Key benefits are as follows:

  • Help reduce stress
  • Reduce pain and muscle tension
  • Improve immune function
  • Increase relaxation
