Massage is an amazing tool for healing the body. It is obvious to most people that massage addresses the needs of achy muscles, but there are many more healing aspects to massage therapy. I'll start with the aspect that massage puts the person who owns the body in touch with the body! It's surprising how many times I touch an area and the client says, "Wow! I didn't know I was sore there!" But there is much more to that picture than meets the eye. There are emotional hurts that get stuck in the soft tissues of our bodies.
