The classical definition of massage therapy is "to stroke, knead, tap and vibrate as means of application of a scientific system of activity to the muscular structure to improve muscle tone and circulation."
"I was having trouble concentrating at work, and a friend recommended that I try a therapeutic massage. After my initial skeptical reaction, I found Eugene Wood and told him about my situation.
The day after my session was remarkably productive. Eugene recommended four separate sessions, and I agreed to his program.
The difference in my ability to concentrate and my improved sleep has changed my life. This form of massage was the revolutionary approach to my health that I needed."

How Does Massage Therapy Work?
Massage therapy of a therapeutic nature reorganizes the body to better function. The art of massage therapy is returning the body to as close to its natural state as can be done without surgery or other invasive techniques. This is done through a scientific application of pressure, tapping, kneading, and stroking the muscular structure of the body.

Many other therapies and medical procedures attempt to fix only one part of the body at a time; however, this type of medical procedure is treating only a final symptom, an aftereffect of a bodily misfunction that was finally large enough to elicit a negative response in a patient.
However, no system of the body works in a vacuum. For example, the immune system depends on the digestive system to remove toxic foods which may contain bacteria and overload white blood cells. The digestive system depends on the muscular system to provide the strength to remove these toxic entities quickly. The muscular system depends on the cardiovascular system to provide the energy for sustained effort. And so on and so forth. Massage of this type works by attending to all of the systems of the body at once - to the system as a whole, not just one at a time.
Massage therapy is a first therapy for many conditions, and has been known to save time, money, and potentially uncomfortable situations, as well as potentially risky medical operations.

Therapeutic Massage Therapy utilizes a wide variety of techniques to relieve pain, increase range of motion of a joint and facilitate the healing of soft tissue injuries."
Massage therapy differs from a simple massage in that the method of application is scientific, not random, and the massage therapist is attempting to elicit a very ordered, precise response. The body is, if nothing else, a large and incredibly complex series of connections.
The better and more in tune these connections are with each other, the better that the body will function.
