Somewhere between a light Swedish massage and deep tissue is just the right touch for most people. The trick is to be intuitive enough to find that space. When achieved, you will rest, you will relax and you will begin to heal. The world will stop for a moment in time and you can begin to be renewed.

The Art of Healing Massage

The art of Healing massage has been around for centuries. Many ancient cultures know the healing benefits of varying massage disciplines. Doctor's today recommend massage as a way to loosen muscles, release stress, and sometimes, aid in healing.

Take a look at what Wikipedia has to say... "...the manipulation of 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, promote relaxation and well-being, and as a recreational activity."

The word, massage, finds its origins in the French word massage which means "friction of kneading". And the Arabic massa meaning "to touch, feel or handle" is related, and the Latinmassa meaning "mass, dough", cf. and as a verb in Greek μάσσω (massō) "to handle, touch, to work with the hands".

Wikipedia goes on to say that "Massage involves working on the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, 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." Exerpts from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massage
