Massage Therapy

When it comes to your body and your health, the benefits of massage are wide-reaching. Whether you’re an athlete, an expectant mother, or a post-operative patient, massage can help relieve stress, decrease muscle tension and stimulate the release of endorphins that work as your body’s natural painkiller.

Other health benefits of massage include:

  • Increased joint flexibility and range of motion
  • Decreased joint pain due to arthritis
  • Enhanced immune system by promoting movement of lymph fluids
  • Improved health and nourishment of the skin (also reduces scar tissue and stretch marks)
  • Decreased blood pressure
  • Reduction in depression and anxiety
  • Reduced muscle spasms, cramping and fatigue
  • Better recovery from workouts and sporting events for athletes

Types of Bodywork

  • Swedish Massage
    Classic therapeutic manipulation that relaxes and soothes muscles as well as stimulates circulation.
  • Therapeutic Massage
    Similar to Swedish massage, this soothing manipulation of soft tissues promotes relaxation of muscles, relief from pain, increased blood and lymph circulation and the restoration of metabolic balance.
  • Deep Tissue/Trigger Point Massage
    A vigorous massage in which the therapist uses techniques on muscles at a deeper level than classic Swedish massage. A great choice for athletes or anyone suffering from muscle tension and soreness.
  • Sports Massage
    The focus of this type of bodywork is to release tight, contracted, overworked muscles used in sport activities. All athletes, including the weekend warrior, can benefit from this.
  • Injury/Rehab Massage
    In cases where injury has occurred massage can help to restore mobility and flexibility to injured muscle and tissue. This can reduce recovery time, promote healing, increase nutrients, and improve circulation of blood flow to muscles.
  • Pregnancy Massage
    After the first trimester, a massage may be beneficial in promoting relaxation, soothing nerves, and relieving strained muscles. Massage also tends to instill a sense of well-being in both mother and unborn child.
