What is Massage
 
Massage is the manual manipulation of tissues to improve health and well-being by relaxing muscles, relieving tension, and improving circulation.
Massage has been around for thousands of years. It is probably one of man's earliest remedies for pain relief.
The word “massage” comes from the Greek root of “masso”, which means, "to touch".
There are many different types of massage, but the most common is Swedish, which includes deep tissue, sports massage lymphatic drainage, neuromuscular therapy, and myofascial release. Rolfing® Structural Integration is another Western form of massage.
Asian forms of massage include Shiatsu, Thai Massage, Jin Shin Jyutsu, and Ayurvedic treatments. Reflexology was actually developed in the West, but derives from Eastern ideas that the body has a flow of energy, or "chi" that can be unblocked with treatment.
Other energy-based treatments include Reiki, Polarity Therapy, and Brennan Healing Science.
Massage has significant psychological and physiological benefits:

1, It reduces tension and anxiety, calms the nervous system and promotes a sense of relaxation and well-being.
2, It improves blood circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells.
3, It stimulates the lymphatic system, which carries away the body’s waste products.
4, It prevents and relieve muscles cramps and spasms.

Massage therapy can also help with pain management in conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, and muscle spasms. But many healthy people get massage regularly because it helps them maintain physical, mental, and emotional well-being

Consultation:
 
At the first consultation the therapist will ask a few questions about your health and well-being, This is to assess any previous medical history that may prevent the therapy from being undertaken and to find out and understand what you would like to get out of the visit. This is to put yourself and the therapist at ease with each other, as this form of therapy is hands-on, but non-invasive.

Never be afraid of asking a therapist any questions and always ask about his or her training and qualifications, if you are not happy at this point stop the session and seek other medical advise.
