Massage Therapy Our

Therapeutic massage involves the manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm and stress; and to promote health and wellness. Therapeutic Massage and Muscular Therapy offer effective, drug-free treatment for pain and stress management.

Therapeutic Massage doesn't just feel good. It reduces the heart rate and blood pressure, improves functioning of the blood circulation and lymph flow, improves range of motion, improves the muscular, skeletal and nervous systems and may improve the rate at which the body recovers from injury and illness.

How can massage be medically beneficial?

People find that massage can help with a wide range of medical conditions:

  • Allergies
  • Anxiety and Stress
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma and Bronchitis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Chronic and Temporary Pain
  • Circulatory Problems
  • Depression
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Headache, especially due to muscle tension
  • Insomnia
  • Myofascial Pain
  • Reduced Range of Motion

How long is a massage?

A massage is usually one hour. This is enough time for a deeply relaxing full body massage, or more in-depth work on a particular area, for instance back, neck and shoulders. We also offer half-hour massages for concentration on one area of the body.

What can you expect on your first visit?

On your first appointment, the massage therapist will usually ask you what prompted you to get a massage, your current physical condition, medical history, lifestyle, stress level, and painful areas. The massage therapist may ask you about your health goals and what you hope massage will do to help you achieve those goals.

For a full body massage with lotion or oil you will be asked to remove clothing to your level of comfort. Undressing takes place in private and a sheet, towel or gown is provided for draping. The therapist will undrape only the part of your body being massaged, insuring that your modesty is respected at all times. For Shiatsu massage, your therapist will work through your clothing and you will not need to disrobe. Your massage will take place in a comfortable atmosphere and on a cushioned table. The room will be warm and quiet, with soft music to set a relaxing mood.

How will I feel after my massage?

Most people feel very relaxed after a massage. Many experience freedom from aches and pains that have built up from months of tension or repetitive activity in their daily life. People often feel an increase in energy that can last for several days.
