Therapeutic massage provides significant relief, stimulates healing, and promotes stress reduction and relaxation.
What does it include?
Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being.
Why is it important?
Benefits include enhancing performance by increasing range of motion, maintaining muscle tone and joint flexibility, increasing blood and lymph circulation, increasing oxygen to reduce muscle spasms, flushing toxins from muscles and joints, and preventing injuries.
There are dozens of types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities).
Drinking plenty of water, using an ice pack, and engaging in light stretching after your first visit can help ease any discomfort to promote healing.
