Massage therapy is the practice of using pressure, tension. motion, or vibration on the body's muscles, tendons, ligaments, and lymphatic areas for medicinal purposes. Massage enhances the body’s ability to heal and reduces pain.
Through increased blood and lymph fluid circulation and the reduction of stress, massage therapy can increase the efficiency of the immune system. It can also reduce blood pressure, relax muscles, improves range of motion and increase endorphins (the body's natural pain killer), enhancing one's medical treatment and recovery.
Massage works by kneading and stroking muscles to relax them, and uses friction to stimulate soft tissues. This therapy can increase blood and lymph circulation while breaking up scar tissue between muscle fibers.
Therapeutic massage and its effect vary with each individual. Clothing is usually removed from the area treated and the patient should be relaxed and comfortable. The amount of clothing removed is alway left up to the patients comfort. We use a non-oily massage cream to reduce friction during the circular stroking and compression of soft tissue.
Massage is useful in many conditions in which body relaxation, the reduction of swelling, and muscle mobilization is desired. Massage can be helpful in overcoming the swelling and pooling of fluids at the site of recent injury or trauma.

Below are some of the benefits of massage therapy?
When looking for a massage therapist, choose someone based on their past experience and how they address your needs. Different massage therapists are trained with often varying expertise. We offer excellent massage therapists who are trained in many of the most sought after methods and have plenty of experience.
Traditional massage using efflurage, petrissage, vibration tapotement, and compression. This is more of a relaxing form of massage but not as therapuetically benificial.
Therapeutic massage using deep pressure. Our Therapists will periodically ask you if the pressure needs to be adjusted. This form of massage is best for reducing muscle spasm, speeds healing of injured muscle tissue by improving circulation and minimizing scar tissue.
Vigorous massage, including stretching and sport-specific muscle therapy.
Finding and eliminating pain-causing “knots” in muscles. Great treatment for chronic pain.
