Massage Therapy

Massage is a perfect way to nurture yourself and bring more balance and ease into your life. Among the oldest healing arts, it has been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of many acute and chronic conditions. Massage consists of applying various soft-tissue techniques to the body in order to reduce stress and ease tensions created by everyday living. The physical benefits of massage include improved circulation, increased range of motion, and reduction of pain and swelling. Massage also aids in the healing of strains and injuries, releases toxins, improves regulation of blood pressure, promotes more restful sleep, and strengthens immune system functioning. Massage brings integration and ease to body, mind, and spirit as it soothes and restores an over-stressed nervous system.  

There are many types and styles of massage, and often practitioners utilize multiple techniques, which may include stroking, kneading, tapping, compression, vibration, stretching, rocking, friction, and pressure to the muscular structure or soft tissue of the body. Oils and lotions may be used to reduce friction.

A few of the more popular types of massage include Swedish, Esalen, Deep Tissue, Sports, Hot Stone, Acupressure, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Trager, and LomiLomi. Please refer to individual practitioners to learn more about the type of massage they offer.
