What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of the soft tissues of the human body.  These tissues include muscles, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments.  There are tremendous benefits to be achieved through regular massage therapy treatments with a Registered Massage Therapist.

Pain Management with Massage Therapy

Whether your need is to have a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension, or attain relief from pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall health and well-being.  Massage therapy helps to alleviate soft tissue discomfort associated with occupational stresses, muscular over-use, trauma and other musculoskeletal disorders, and is an excellent form of preventative healthcare.  Massage therapy is proven to be a favorable approach to pain management and injury rehabilitation (for people of all ages), as it encourages the body’s own healing process and decreases healing time for both acute and chronic conditions.
