New Calgary Massage Therapy Clinic And Website

Calgary, Alberta Canada (PressExposure) April 19, 2011 -- Calgary Massage Therapy Clinic opens a new website - There you will be able to find out a lot about different massage therapy techniques offered by this Calgary clinic. Massage therapy has a long history in cultures around the world. Today, people use many different types of massage therapy for a variety of health-related purposes.

Massage therapy encompasses many different techniques. In general, therapists press, rub, and otherwise manipulate the muscles and other soft tissues of the body. They most often use their hands and fingers, but may use their forearms, elbows, or feet.

In the Calgary massage therapy clinic, Massage Therapy, is considered a combination of science and art, and provides a relaxing experience by artistic hand strokes on the body to rejuvenate the mind and body and eliminate stress scientifically. The concept of massage is evident throughout history. The origin of the term 'massage' can be traced to four sources:

- Greek - masso/massein, meaning to touch or to handle, also meaning to knead or to squeeze

- Latin - massa, lifted from Greek masso and means the same

- Arabic- mass'h or mass, means to press softly

- Sanskrit- makeh, also means to press softly

According to research massage therapy is very effective in treatment several muscle related conditions. The studies included in this research suggest that a single session of massage therapy can reduce "state anxiety" (a reaction to a particular situation), blood pressure, and heart rate, and multiple sessions can reduce "trait anxiety" (general anxiety-proneness), depression, and pain. Findings in this Calgary massage therapy clinic confirm some other recent studies that suggest massage may benefit certain conditions, for example:

* Back pain

* Inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and tendinitis

* Stress relief and stress-related conditions

* Headaches and migraines

* Muscle and related conditions such as spasms, strains and sprains

* Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome

* Circulatory and respiratory problems

* Post-injury and post surgical rehabilitation

* relaxes the whole body

* loosens tight muscles

* relieves tired and aching muscles

* increases flexibility and range of motion

* diminishes chronic pain

* calms the nervous system

* lowers blood pressure

* lowers heart rate

* enhances skin tone

* assists in recovery from injuries and illness

* strengthens the immune system

* reduces tension headaches

* reduces mental stress

* improves concentration

* promotes restful sleep

* aids in mental relaxation

Body and mind should not be regarded as separate entities. Therapists in the Calgary massage therapy clinic are very aware of the holistic approach to health. Physical symptoms such as headaches or constant fatigue are often an indication of what is 'on our mind'. Muscles contract and tighten in response to anger and anxiety or may become slack as we assign ourselves to what is happening in our lives. Within the physical body is buried a whole lifetime of experience and emotions - birth, childhood, pleasure and pain, shock, frustration, fear, grief, joy and much more besides. Massage therapy is an excellent tool for enabling us to become more aware of what is happening deep within us.
