About Massage Therapy

In the trusted hands of an experienced Registered Massage Therapist, you can revitalize both body and mind.  Massage is one of the best ways to soothe aching muscles, reduce stress, and recover from sports injuries or repetitive strains so you can live your life to the fullest.

Massage therapy offers health benefits to people of all ages. While it certainly helps those injured, the ill and the stressed, massage therapy can play an essential role in preventing illness and conditions before they develop. Massage therapy can be used in the treatment of both acute and chronic stages of conditions.

Along with the healing power of touch itself, massage can help stimulate circulation, encourage the lymphatic system, heal injured muscles, reduce pain, release tension, impart calm, and rev up immune system activity.  In addition, massage has been shown to stimulate the release of endorphins and lower stress hormone levels.

The benefits of massage may include increased energy, reduced injury recovery time, pain reduction, relaxation, improved mood, amplified well-being, and healing support.

Massage has been shown to lighten depression in those who suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome; it is also eases a variety of musculoskeletal problems, including osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, sprains and strains, and lower back pain.  Massage can even lower blood pressure, reduce constipation, and decrease swelling after surgeries.
