Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage is one of those curious human interactions which differ in their effect, depending on the intent with which they are performed and received.  The reason why touch is so powerful is based on the recognition that tactile experiences are the first sensations which greet us at birth. They are also the last perceptions to leave us when we die. Touch has been known to create a rise in blood pressure of people in a deep coma and to penetrate the nonverbal state of late stage Alzheimer’s patients who, suddenly during a massage, may blurt out a sentence like, “Oh, this feels good,” only to return immediately into their silent world.  By the same token, touch can penetrate the semi-comatose state produced by a painkiller and give the treatment the added value of human contact.
