Massage Therapy

A hands-on approach to healthy living

The on-going benefits of professional massage therapy can have a profound affect on both body and mind. From stress relief to the alleviation of chronic pain, more and more people are discovering how therapeutic massage can improve their lives.

What is massage therapy?

Massage in general is the manual manipulation of the superficial and/or deeper layers of the soft tissues and connective tissues of the body to enhance function as well as promote relaxation and well-being. Massage is used therapeutically as a system of manually applied techniques and modalities designed to relieve and reduce pain, establish normal tissue tension and create a positive tissue environment that normalizes the movement of the musculoskeletal system.


How can massage therapy help me?

People get massages for many different reasons, the most common of which is relaxation. Massage also improves circulation and relieves muscle tension. As a result of our fast-paced lives, mental and emotional stress has increased over the years. New applications for massage therapy in areas related to mental and emotional well-being are giving rise to individuals receiving massage at the advice of their doctor to help manage both physical and mental stress tension.

The benefits of massage therapy fall into three main categories:
Massage stretches muscles, improves lymph flow by increasing the elimination of waste products and increases oxygen saturation levels. This increases the rate of healing for injured muscular tissue, improves posture and reduces blood pressure.
Physical touch has been shown to create biochemical changes in the brain. These changes generate responses on a cellular level such as stimulating the release of endorphins-the body’s natural painkillers-resulting in the reduction of pain and anxiety and thus promoting better sleep patterns. This in return reduces fatigue, sharpens concentration and enables clearer thinking.
The byproduct of mental biochemical changes may lessen anxiety, creating a better sense of well-being and increasing overall happiness.

Massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen alone or as an adjunct to other healthcare programs such as chiropractic care, physical therapy or psychotherapy.
