Massage Therapy

Massage reduces pain, relieves chronic muscle tension, increases circulation, promotes relaxation and calm, and helps in dealing with stress. Through the working of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, massage enhances function, aids in the healing process, and promotes relaxation and well-being.

Massage is known to affect the circulation of blood and the flow of blood and lymph, reduce muscular tension, affect the nervous system through stimulation or sedation, and enhance tissue healing.

Some medical conditions that massage therapy can help are: allergies, anxiety and stress, arthritis, asthma and bronchitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive motion injuries, chronic and temporary pain, circulatory problems, depression, digestive disorders, tension headaches, insomnia, myofascial pain, sports injuries, and temporomandibular joint dysfunction.
