Probably the best known use of massage is for relaxation (I have many clients who come to my massage therapy practice in York for a relaxing massage) , but it has so many other benefits as well. Many people have experienced relief from stress after having a massage. Muscular soreness and muscular tension can be relieved with massage. It can also help with the elimination of waste from the body. There are many different types of massage, including sports, pregnancy, hands free, Swedish, Thai, acupressure, Shiatsu, aromatherapy and tuina.
