Massage therapy is used to help manage many health conditions and to heighten overall wellness.
It involves manipulating soft tissues of the body - extensive instruction and training is necessary to accomplish therapeutic healing effect.
Professional massage has been practiced in most cultures, both Eastern and Western, throughout human history and was one of the earliest tools that people used to try to relieve their physical pain.
Trained Massage Therapists know specific techniques that relax muscle tissues and muscle fibers, which reduces painful contractions and spasms.
Massage also reduces nerve compression. So then, consider that when muscles are contracted (also inflamed from over use), they sometimes compress the nerves around them - creating debilitating nerve pain.
The modern day Massage Therapist is ultimately a blood flow specialist! We assist the body in clearing restriction and stagnation in the muscles of the body.
When people are in physical pain their everyday life can become such a burden, such a struggle.
Professionally licensed massage therapists are equipped with the skills and knowledge to reduce and even eliminate chronic pain in the body.
We recommend a regular scheduled massage at least once a month - or more frequently when chronic pain is occurring.
