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. The basic idea behind massage is the use of motion, pressure, tension and vibration on certain areas of the body, localized around muscles or joints in pain or under stress. This allows a release of tension and a return to a homeostatic condition. Therefore, massage is very important for general stress relief, pain management, muscle injury prevention, and it encourages physical and emotional healing and improves circulation. In this free video series on massage techniques, massage therapist Sundae Thomas demonstrates several massage techniques for alleviating stress and tension throughout the body. Thomas begins by discussing how massage can help treat people with diabetes, headaches and sore neck muscles. She explains how to make massage oils, set up a massage business, restore a massage table, decorate a massage room and massage various muscles throughout the body.
