Massage Therapy


Massage Therapy has become an important part of general health care for many people today. Traditional healthcare systems throughout the world recognize that therapeutic massage can play an important role in treating illness or chronic ailments, and contribute to a higher sense of general well-being. 

The beneficial affects of Massage Therapy are abundant. NIH research has shown that massage reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, increases white blood cell and natural killer cell activity, relaxes muscles, decreases anxiety and respiratory rate, improves range of motion, and increases endorphins.

Beyond these physical benefits, Massage Therapy also:

    • Fosters peace of mind
    • Promotes a relaxed state of mental alertness
    • Helps relieve mental stress
    • Improves ability to monitor stress signals and respond appropriately
    • Enhances capacity for calm thinking and creativity
    • Satisfies needs for caring nurturing touch
    • Fosters a feeling of well-being
    • Reduces levels of anxiety
    • Creates body awareness
    • Increases awareness of mind-body connection

With ever-expanding research confirming the beneficial effects of massage, more professionals are advising patients to include therapeutic massage in their health care treatment plans. Physicians, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and physiotherapists are recommending massage to more patients, and many employers and health insurance plans support the use of licensed massage therapists.

We invite you to schedule a massage session with one of our licensed massage therapist and enjoy the benefits of their caring and therapeutic touch.
