Massage Therapy is the hands-on manipulation of soft tissues including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. The therapist works to improve the circulation of blood, nutrients, and oxygen throughout the entire body, as well as the removal of metabolic waste products from muscles and tissues. This helps clients not only to relieve the pain and discomfort associated with muscle tension, fractures, sprains, sciatica, stiff joints, but also to recover more quickly from exertion and fatigue (after a long day at work, or a strenuous workout).
I offer the following types of massage:
Massage Therapy provides relief to people of all ages and from all walks of life:
Office worker, home maker, gardener, fitness buff, athlete, any stressed or overworked individual – from student to executive!
Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage Therapy is an alternative health option to help alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular overuse, injuries, and many chronic pain syndromes. Often, pain is caused by myofascial trigger points in the muscles, which can be released by the therapist.
In addition, massage is great way to relax and reduce anxiety, even depression. It helps calm and re-energize you at the same time. In case of an accident involving trauma or injury, it can also greatly speed recovery and help to improve range of motion and flexibility.
As people continue to live longer, massage offers a way for seniors to deal with some of the issues associated with old age, such as arthritis, tendonitis, and bursitis. Massage provides a natural means of joint lubrication through improved circulation and mobility, and it causes the body to release endorphins that act as natural pain killers.
Massages are enjoyed unclothed, but you will be fully covered by a towel or sheet - except for the part of your body that is worked on at the time. Your privacy will be respected at all times. For those uncomfortable disrobing, I recommend Jin Shin Jyutsu® as an equally effective alternative.
