Massage therapy is an ancient form of healing and pain relief dating back more than 4,000 years. Today there is a variety of modalities to satisfy everyone’s bodywork needs including deep tissue, hot stone, Swedish, sports, energy work, Acupressure, Thai, Reflexology, Craniosacral, Lymph Drainage, Shiatsu, Sound Therapy, and Equine and Canine massages for our four legged friends.
Clinical research on the benefits of body massages demonstrates significant efficacy on rehabilitation and recovery from common sports related injury or post-surgery adhesions. Massage therapy also reduces pain, cramps, stress, and anxiety; improves immunity, circulation, concentration, and sleep quality; increases flexibility, tissue regeneration, and energy; and of course it feels comforting and promotes relaxation. In addition, massage helps patients with cancer or HIV/AIDS cope with the deleterious effects of these diseases, mitigates some of the negative repercussions of Fibromyalgia sufferers, and improves blood circulation in people with cardio vascular ailments.
