Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the muscles of the body for the purpose of normalizing those tissues. While massage therapy is applied primarily with the hands, sometimes the forearms or elbows are used. Massage therapy promotes change to the muscular, skeletal, circulatory and nervous systems of the body. Massage therapy provides a number of benefits:

  • reduction of muscle tension and stiffness
  • relief of muscle spasms
  • relief of whiplash pain
  • faster recovery of exercise related muscle fatigue (sports)
  • greater flexibility and range of motion
  • relief of stress and aids in relaxation
  • improves blood circulation to the muscles
  • relief of tension-related conditions, such as headaches
  • faster healing of soft tissue injuries, such as a pulled or strained muscle, and reduction in pain related to such injuries
  • reduction of excessive scar tissue following soft tissue injuries
  • improvement in posture through changing muscle tension
