Massage Therapy

“Issues With Your Tissues!”

Massage therapy is a hands-on manipulation of the body’s soft tissues using varying techniques. It is used to help restore proper function of muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, nerves, lymph and blood flow.

Massage therapy relaxes the nervous system, increases metabolism and helps speed up the healing process. It can relieve pain, reduce muscle tension and improve posture.

A qualified massage therapist will use oil, cream, powder or an instrument to enhance the therapeutic effect. He or she may focus on treating specific areas during a standard session, which typically ranges from 30 to 90 minutes.
