Massage consists of manipulating the superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibit motor-neuron excitability and promote relaxation and well-being.
Massage can also be viewed as a recreational activity.
Massage involves working and acting on the body with pressure – with various techniques; structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – using tension, motion, or vibration and can be done manually or with mechanical aids.
Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels or organs of the gastrointestinal system.
Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, or feet and in some instances, warmed smooth stones.
