A man massaging a woman's back. Massage involves the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body. It is often used as an aid to relaxation by reducing muscle tension in the upper back and neck. The use of plant oil extracts in massage is part of the alternative treatment called aromatherapy. In mainstream medicine massage is used to improve circulation, reduce oedema if present, prevent muscle adhesion after injury and to reduce muscular spasms.
