What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy consists of various techniques and modalities. However, the practice is primarily hands on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, fascia, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health and rehabilitation.

Massage therapy treatment enhances the bodies recovery process and optimizes health by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical dysfunction, pain and naturally the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented. For relatively healthy individuals, physical function can be optimized, maintained and/or improved with regular treatments.
