is the manipulation of the muscles and ligaments often using oils and lotions to facilitate a gentle glide across the skin. The underlying musculature is kneaded with a variety of different strokes to provide the physiological benefit of increased direct arterial flow and indirect venous flow. This increased circulation helps decrease hypertonicity of the muscles and allows an increase in range-of-movement in the joints of the body. This is helpful to relieve pain, restore function and promote relaxation.
