Therapeutic Massage Therapy
Massage is the intentional and systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body to enhance health and healing. Joint movements and stretches are often included as part of a massage. Once assessed I can then figure out what is causing the pain and then be able to set up a treatment plan specific to the signs & symptoms that the client has.
Massage therapy melts away stress and tension, relieving associated headaches and muscular aches and pains. Massage therapy aids in the healing process from injury or over-use, and is an excellent form of preventive health care.

Massage can help you...
Massage is a gentle, touch therapy that can relieve pain and bring balance to your life. Massage is not a substitute for medical care but it can reduce or eliminate the need for medication or surgery.
Massage therapy will calm your nervous system and gives you more energy. It will relieve many types of muscle tightness especially the back and neck area where most of us store the tension. Muscles can become so contracted that they press on nerves to the arms, hands and legs, causing pain, tingling and numbness. Massage can release muscle spasm and tightness in the shoulders or hip to bring relief.
Massage will relieve headaches caused by trigger points, or eyestrain, a low back pain during pregnancy, or the protective tensing of healthy muscles around an injury.
Many of today's health problems arise from stress. Because stress upsets the delicate integral balance of all your body's functions, regaining this balance requires a holistic approach
