What is Massage Therapy?
Massage Therapy treats pain and dysfunction throughout the body, creating positive changes in muscle tone and general flexibility. Massage Therapy involves techniques such as deep tissue, myofascial and trigger point therapies, combined with education and remedial exercises to improve body mechanics and overall health. Regular massage is also an excellent way to reduce day-to-day stress and tension, while increasing feelings of tranquility, energy and vitality.
