Massage therapy is primarily a manual technique focused on manipulating connective tissues within the body (ligaments, joints, fascia, tendons and muscles) as well as joint manipulation and postural education.  The purpose(s) may be to break down scar tissue, increase/improve circulation, decrease swelling, improve muscle flexibility, decrease trigger points and improve joint mobility.
