What is massage therapy?

Wondering what exactly massage therapy means when it comes to using it for your health problems? Chiropractic massage therapy treatments focus on using the spine and central nervous system to promote healing throughout the entire body. This manual manipulation is used on various part of the body, with an emphasis on soft tissues, e.g., muscle, skin, tendons, ligaments, joints, etc. The overall goal of therapy can range from relaxing the soft tissues for better flexibility and range of motion to providing the patient with the rehabilitative therapy needed for a complete recovery.
