Massage Benefits

Massage Therapy is a hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. It is also an alternative health option to help alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular overuse and many chronic pain syndromes.

It can also greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning especially if employed early enough after accidents involving trauma and injury.

Massage therapists work to improve the circulation of blood through the body and to speed the removal of metabolic waste products from muscles. Their skilled kneading increases the flexibility of muscles, ligaments and other soft tissues. Some people visit a massage therapist to relieve pain or to warm up before a sporting event. Others just use it to help them relax and reduce stress.
