It’s perfectly fine to have an emotional release..

Massage therapy benefits provides a soothing and comforting alternative to verbal therapeutic techniques, such as counseling.


A phenomenon called emotional release sometimes happens during a massage session. Unexpressed emotions that are held in the body may come to the surface when receiving massage therapy.

How this happens is much the same as reaching out to a friend who is hurting and you touch their hand or shoulder. A tear might come quite involuntarily. It just happens… and needs to be released. The right circumstance and the right person will elicit a release at anytime in our lives.

Our bodies store our experiences. Sometime a sore shoulder is much more than a tight muscle.

Certain forms of massage therapy specifically address the emotions and therapists are trained to deal with issues brought up during the massage session.

Touch helps fulfill the need for human contact and nurturing that we received from birth. For some people this is the only caring contact that they may ever feel. This is why I refer to massage as being similar to an hour long hug.

How to be one of the best massage therapist in Philadelphia?

My name is Gabriella Gillmanton. I have been Billy’s client for the past 5 years. I have chronic myofascial neck and low back pain. I have had many massage treatments prior to meeting Billy, however, Billy is by far the most skilled massage therapist I have been treated by. Billy treats my neck and back pain on a monthly basis; he combines his outstanding skills as a masseuse and his excellent knowledge of anatomy, and provides the therapeutic treatments that allow me to function better. His treatments relieve muscle spasms in my neck and back, alleviate the trigger points, and allow me to decrease the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications that I’m prescribed for the management of the myofascial pain. Billy is an outstanding professional and treatment by him has significantly improved my quality of life.

Professionally, I am a physician with training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and I will be finishing specialty training in Interventional Pain Management at Temple University Hospital on December 31, 2011. I appreciate the importance of a good masseuse both from my personal experience, as well as from the benefit that patients obtain from massage therapy. In the past, while undergoing residency and fellowship training, I was able to refer patients to Billy, who have also benefited from his treatment. As I start practicing on January 9th, 2011 as an attending Interventional Pain Management physician at Reconstructive Orthopedics, in Lumberton, NJ, I plan to refer more patients to Billy.

Billy is an outstanding therapist, who should continue practicing massage therapy, as he makes a significant difference in the lives of the patients that he treats.

Fighting common health issues with a massage.


By lessening the tension in your muscles, massage therapy can help you overcome a number of stress-related health issues, including insomnia, fatigue, and lack of focus. Massage also reduces stiffness in your muscles and joints, which could help boost your flexibility and mobility (both essential to healthy aging).   


What’s more, research shows that massage can decrease stress hormones while increasing levels of feel-good brain chemicals like serotonin and dopamine, which could explain the therapy’s positive effects on people with depression and chronic fatigue syndrome.
