Massage is the practice of soft tissue manipulation of the body with physical, functional, and in some cases psychological purposes and goals.
Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints or other connective tissue as well as lymphatic vessels or organs of the gastrointestinal system.###
Benefits of massage include pain relief, reduced trait anxiety and depression, and temporarily reduced blood pressure, heart rate and state anxiety. Further, massage stimulates the immune system (especially in aromatherapy massage).
In general you should drink plenty of water after a massage to get rid of any toxins released by the massage and rest for at least half an hour.
