Massage is the movement of superficial layers of the muscles and connective tissues to enhance body functions and promote relaxation and well-being. Massage is a very natural thing we do for comfort and pain relief. The first thing we do when we hurt ourselves is rub the affected area. Massage Melbourne therapists have made this touch their profession.
