Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage is as perfect elixir for good health, but it can also provide an integration of  body and mind.  There are many benefits to massage therapy.  It helps relax overused and injured muscles, reduces spasms and cramping, increases joint flexibility, relieves pain from migraines, and also helps with depression and anxiety.

A typical massage therapy session is between 40 to 90 minutes.  Your massage will begin with a brief consultation and review of symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle.

The massage therapist uses oil or lotion on the skin and begins the massage.  A full body massage usually begins on the back and then moves down to the legs.  You will then be asked to turn over so you are face up. The massage continues on your arms, legs, neck, face, and scalp.  A massage also can be tailored to your preference.
