Massage Therapy

Throughout history massage has been used to improve recovery time, restore energy, manage stress and ease body aches. Today, massages are considered to be one of the longest-standing forms of “healing art.”

People use massage to promote relaxation and relieve pain. It can also relieve muscle tension and may improve blood flow, relieve pressure on nerves, and restore normal joint movement. There is scientific evidence that massage may help with back pain and may improve quality of life for people with depression.

Massage is defined as rubbing the soft tissues of the body, such as the muscles.

Scientific studies show that massage therapy has many healthful benefits.

  • Treats lower back pain
  • Reduces arthritis, fibromyalgia, bursitis & joint pain
  • Can help lower high blood pressure
  • Can help with depression, anxiety & fatigue

Massages have been found to effectively relax muscles and stiff joints, plus lower symptoms associated with fibromyalgia — a chronic syndrome characterized by generalized pain, joint rigidity, intense fatigue, sleep alterations, headache and muscle spasms.
