Massage Therapy 

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is one of the oldest forms of health care. Our therapists are highly trained in the anatomy of the body and have a unique understanding of the musculoskeletal system. Therefore, they work with hands-on therapeutic and rehabilitatve techniques to address conditions that are soft tissue in nature (muscle, tendon/ligament, fascia, etc.). This promotes rapid functional improvement and optimal healing and recovery for patients.

What are the benefits of Massage Therapy?

Whether your in pain, need muscles relaxed or just want to feel relief our highly trained massage therapists will create a comforting environment for you. Once your session is underway, you can feel problems of the world drop into 60 minutes of relief and bliss and all you’ll know is that you don’t want it to end.

Evidence has shown that the more massages you allow yourself to have, the better you'll feel. The human touch has a natural reaction to pain and stress, as well as conveys compassion and support. Massage has been a healing tool for thousands of years in many cultures. Throughout time and throughout the world, healers have been able to instinctually and independently develop a wide range of therapeutic techniques with the use of touch. In fact many are still in use today. There now is scientific proof of the benefits of massage with the benefits ranging from the treating chronic diseases and injuries to alleviating the growing tensions caused by our modern lifestyles. A massage can do more than just relax your body or mind, there are specific physiological and psychological changes which occur, especially when massage is utilized as a preventative therapy and not simply as a mere luxury. Massage not only feels good, but it can help the body heal.

The Need for Touch

Experts have estimated that between 80 to 90 percent of disease are related to stress. Massage and bodywork can combat that large number by reminding us what it means to relax. The physical changes that massage can bring to your body can have a positive effect in various areas of your life. Besides increasing your relaxation and decreasing your anxiety, massages can lower your blood pressure, increase your circulation, improve your recovery from injuries, help you to sleep better and can increase your concentration. It also can reduce fatigue, giving you more energy to handle those stressful days.

In an age of technical and, many times, impersonal medicine, a massage can offer a drug-free, non-invasive and the human touch approach based on the body's natural ability to heal itself.
