Massage Therapy

 

 

Up to 90% of visits to primary care physicians are for stress related complaints such as headaches, anxiety, depression, irritability, neck pain, high blood pressure, etc.

Massage therapy counteracts your body’s negative response to stress, relaxing muscle tension and allowing your heart rate, blood pressure and circulation to return to normal.

Massage therapy helps you to become more aware of your body and unconsciously held tension. As you become more aware of your body, you will begin to recognize tension as it builds during the day.

Services Offered:

Relaxation Massages – Promotes relaxation, improves circulation, relieves muscle aches and tension and increases metabolism.

Therapeutic/Medical Massage – Focuses on a specific health care problem (i.e., arthritis, back pain, carpel tunnel) or auto-work related injury. Often prescribed by a physician or chiropractor.
