Registered Massage Therapists are trained, caring professionals, who use a variety of massage techniques to decrease pain, improve function, and relax the entire body.
Massage therapists optimize health by hands-on manipulation of soft tissues. This includes muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and connective tissue. You should consider massage therapy if you are experiencing tension or pain in the body resulting from injury, illness, or stress. Pregnant women benefit from massage, as their bodies are going through change and growth. Other conditions that may be helped by massage include anxiety and depression, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, and insomnia.
Massage therapy can help you heal and enhance your quality of life by reducing or eliminating pain, improving joint mobility, circulation and immune response. It may also reduce tension within muscles and increase body awareness.
