Massage Therapy
 

Why a Massage?

Massage was invented centuries ago. Massage is one of the best known remedies to relieve stress. Reducing stress increases and balances your energy and relieves pain. When you are in pain, or your movements are restricted, you are unable to enjoy your body and your life the way you like to. Every day stress, repetitive movements on the job, household accidents and sports injuries can cause temporary or even, when untreated, permanent problems in your muscles. Tight muscles tend to restrict blood flow and are more prone to injury. Muscles can become so contracted that they press on nerves in arms, hands, legs and/or neck. This will give you a feeling of pain, tingling or numbness in the area of the pressed nerve.  

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage is a massage in which the massage therapist will use a variety of manual techniques designed to relieve stress, promote relaxation and general wellness in a person who has no definable health problems. 

Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage is a massage in which the massage therapist will use a variety of manual techniques designed to relieve stress and promote relaxation, mobilize various structures, relieve pain and swelling, prevent deformity and promote functional independence in a person who has a specific health problem.

As well as the above conditions, massage can also help with:

  • Reducing anxiety
  • Boost your brain’s production of feel-good chemicals like oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin
