Massage therapy is often a vital part of a health promotion program and may be extremely beneficial in the treatment of a variety of conditions. Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health. Cranio-Sacral Therapy and Myofascial Release are specialized skills our therapist can offer.
Massage therapy affects the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems; and provides many benefits: reduced stress; less pain from headaches and fibromyalgia; improved sleep; reduced symptoms from multiple sclerosis; reduced symptoms from depression and anxiety; lowered blood pressure; improved concentration and energy; better lung function in asthmatics; enhanced clarity of thinking; improved symptoms of PMS; and less discomfort from musculoskeletal disorders and arthritis. Many people feel a deep sense of calm after a therapeutic massage treatment.
