What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is a form of manual manipulation of soft tissue to help relieve tension, improve range of motion, reduce pain, relax muscles, and promote overall wellness. Our massage therapists are highly trained in a variety of massage techniques to provide you with the most effective treatment.
Massage therapy has therapeutic effects on the musculoskeletal system, the circulatory system, and the nervous system. It can improve on how these systems function and aid in injury recovery, muscle tension relief and general stress management. The benefits can be physical, psychological and emotional in nature.
Many people access massage therapy on a regular basis for maintenance due to the daily physical and mental demands on their bodies. This helps to control the adverse accumulated effects over weeks or months of a stressful work or home life.
What conditions does it treat?
Massage therapy is known to effectively treat chronic conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, repetitive stress injuries, frozen shoulder, neck and back pain, stiff joints, insomnia, tight muscles, and post surgical rehab. It can also be used as part of an overall wellness plan to improve overall health and well-being.
