Series Summary

Massage therapy is a practice with a multiplicity of benefits. Whether it’s a quick rubdown or a full-body treatment, the human touch has practical applications for promoting both physical and emotional well-being. Massage is performed with the use of motion, pressure, tension and vibration on certain areas of the body such as painful or stressed muscles and joints. This allows a release of tension and a return to a homeostatic condition. Beyond general stress relief, massage encourages physical and emotional healing by improving circulation. When targeted to relieve specific symptoms such as sinus congestion in children, massage therapy can be an effective cure. In this free video on massage therapy, a massage expert demonstrates how to treat sinus congestion with massage techniques. She explains how to prepare a child for massage by making them as comfortable and relaxed as possible, then demonstrates massage on various areas of the head and face, including the eye sockets, nose and cheeks. Though this technique is not effective for curing a fever, it can relieve allergy or cold symptoms.
