What is massage therapy?

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Whether it’s for relaxation, to reduce muscle tension, or to get relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well-being as well as your quality of life.

Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body to promote health, to rehabilitate, to relax, to prevent dysfunction, or to relieve pain.   This direct, hands-on treatment has a therapeutic effect on the neuromuscular, circulatory and hormonal systems of the body.

Applying their knowledge of anatomy and physiology, massage therapists use a variety of modern and well- established massage techniques, as well as remedial exercises, hydrotherapy (use of hot and cold) and other therapies to treat their clients.
