Benefits of Massage Therapy
decreased pain, increased mobility, reduced stress
Whether you are in search of help in acute injury recovery and rehabilitation, looking for a healthful way to deal with day-to-day stress and increase relaxation, dealing with chronic pain from repetitive strain or simply interested in maintaining good health, Therapeutic Massage is a safe and effective form of health care.

Many people sleep well after massage. This aids physical and emotional health and helps restore mental equilibrium. As clients begin to feel better with massage, they often discover renewed energy and motivation for physical activity.
Massage therapy plays an important role in the rehabilitative process. When fibrous connective tissue is laid down as part of the repair process, it creates adhesions, scar tissue that is dense and unorganized, blocking the healthy flow of nutrients in and waste out. Massage can break up this scar tissue allowing the healthy flow to be restored.
When muscles stay tightened over time, blood supply to the area is compromised, contracted muscles receive less oxygen and nutrients, and waste products build up. Abnormal tension in the tissues can increase neurological stimulation leading to a vicious cycle of more tension and pain. The body may develop compensatory, restricted movement. Poor blood circulation in a muscle decreases muscle contraction and reduces muscle strength. Fatigue, frustration, lack of energy, as well as mental and emotional stress may develop from chronic pain and physical restriction.
Deep heat and massage can improve blood circulation and metabolism and thus reduce pain. When massage therapists release contracted muscles and reduce pain, they help restore capacity for normal movement. Anxiety and stress lessen as clients increase their level of activity and achieve more control in their daily functioning.
Massage Therapy can help treat and has been shown to provide relief from many conditions, such as:
