Massage therapy is something that has the huge benefit of being both highly beneficial to your health, and highly pleasant and enjoyable. This is perhaps the best way to treat yourself while at the same time improving many aspects of your health and is one of the only kinds of medicine that people are likely to enjoy taking.
When you get massage therapy this involves lying down on a massage table with your face looking through a hole in the head rest and letting someone rub and manipulate your spine, neck and shoulders. This all results in the tension being eased out of your body and is one of the few times that you can indulge in someone giving you a pleasant treatment without having to reciprocate or feel grateful about it. You can simply rest yourself and let someone pay attention to making you feel good.
At the same time you are likely to find that a registered massage therapist employs other things to make the experience pleasant.
