MASSAGE

is the structured process of stroke, kneading and applying pressure to certain points on the body, for rehabilitative purposes alleviating pain sourced from sports injuries and a lack of circulation which can lead to aching muscles and muscle spasm.

MASSAGE: "Offered in a range of spas, massage or massage therapy involves systematically applying pressure to areas of the body to relieve tension."
