Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and improves health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous, and circulatory systems. It can help alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday stress, muscular overuse, and many chronic pain syndromes. If employed early enough after accidents involving trauma and injury, massage therapy can greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning.

  • Strains/sprains
