More than a spa treatment: Why massage therapy is part of what we do.

Massage therapy can be more than just a foo-foo spa treatment. Licensed Massage Therapists (LMTs) are trained in a range of techniques designed to help with a variety of conditions, both physical and mental:

  • improve flexibility
  • decrease joint pain & inflammation
  • improve range of motion
  • decrease pain & possibly decrease medication dependence
  • break down scar tissue
  • promote relaxation
  • decrease stress
  • enhance immunity by increasing lymph flow
  • release endorphins
  • reduce or relieve headaches
  • improve posture and gait
  • reduce post-surgical adhesions & swelling
  • improve circulation

Science has proven massage therapy has a long list of benefits. In conjunction with other physcial & occupational therapy methods, massage therapy can drastically speed results. Supplementing your traditional therapy with massage therapy sessions can  improve your overall therapy experience and emotional well-being during the healing process. Most importantly, you have control over the experience! Talk to your therapist and discuss level of pressure, areas of discomfort or pain, and symptoms and they will customize your session specifically for your needs! Don't wait another minute!
