Massage. Side view of a woman's torso, in which a male masseur massages her back. Massage consists of rubbing and kneading areas of the body. It is used to relieve painful muscle spasm, treat muscle injury, reduce oedema (fluid retention) and, in treatment of scars, to prevent tethering of skin and underlying tissue. Massage increases blood flow, relaxes muscles, and increases the supple- ness of the skin.
