The Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is the systematic manipulation of soft tissue to improve comfort and function. It is a relaxing treatment with immediate benefits that include stress relief and the reduction of tension, soreness and fatigue.
With time and continuity, the deeper benefits of massage include relief from chronic pain or discomfort, better immunity and less reliance on medications. It helps the body to regulate itself, and it promotes a deeper sense of body awareness and well-being.
I typically schedule massages in 30, 60, and 90 minute sessions. During that time, we can use any combination of Swedish or therapeutic techniques that are right for you.
