Massage Therapy

Once considered only a luxury service, Massage Therapy has quickly become a mainstream treatment option for many common ailments.  With physicians and hospital system routinely recommending massage therapy services for their patients.

Therapeutic Massage can provide relief from many health issues facing people today.  These health benefits have been well researched and documented.  Pain and muscle recovery are some of the common issues that people seek massage for.  However there are many others.  Such as:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Anxiety
  • Addictions
  • Pregnancy
  • Sports Injuries
  • Migraines
  • Reduce Swelling
  • Hospice / End of Life
  • Stress Management
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Pre and Post Surgery
  • Burns
  • Scar Reduction
  • And many others

For years massage was an integral part of medical care.  With physicians and nurses trained to provide this type of therapy.  As “Modern” medicine evolved to a more pharmaceutical approach to healthcare, many of the techniques used in massage practice become less and less utilized by the medical community.  This however did not change their effectiveness.  Now we are seeing a resurgence of these techniques, and newer ones, as people are seeking more natural methods of healing.

Types of Massage Therapy

There are many different modalities and techniques that would fall under the umbrella of massage therapy.  Too many to list here in fact.  But there is often a division that is made between a therapeutic massage, and more of a relaxation style massage.  One is not better than the other, and each have their benefits.  Choosing which one is right for you is what is important.
