Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of the soft tissues of the body – muscles, connective tissues, tendons and ligaments. This therapy involves hands-on techniques and can encompass a large variety of modalities to affect some results. Stress and the challenges of daily life can create interference in the mind-body connection – this can manifest in the body as physical symptoms such as muscle tension, aches and fatigue.
Beyond addressing specific conditions or diseases massage often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection. Other benefits of massage include, but aren’t limited to, increasing circulation, improving sleep, maintaining or improving muscle tone, relieving tension, reducing stress, relieving anxiety and promoting relaxation.
Therapy techniques benefit the entire body and are appropriate for individuals of any age. Most importantly, massage is a powerful tool to help you take control of your health and well-being.
