Massage therapy involves applying manual pressure and manipulation to the soft tissues of the body, which include muscle, connective tissue, ligaments, tendons and joints. Our practitioners have been trained to combine traditional eastern healing practices with western clinical knowledge and assessments of the body to create a calming and therapeutic massage session for you.
Our treatments are designed to effectively target and treat your chief complaint while allowing your body to relax and rejuvenate. While one treatment alone may not be the “quick fix” to all of your bodily complaints, with consistent treatment and by following the home-care instructions provided by your practitioner, you will be well on your way to more resilient good health.
Some of the most basic benefits of massage therapy, include:
- Increases circulation
- Improves joint mobility
- Reduces pain
- Improve quality of sleep
- Improves lymphatic drainage – immune system
- Decreases muscular tension
- Reduces anxiety/depression
- Reduces headaches
- Improves posture
- Helps prevent injury
- A great way to reduce stress!
“Suzy is an extremely talented massage therapist. When I first came to see her several years ago I was suffering with chronic back and leg pain. It was clear very soon after meeting her that she was genuinely interested in helping me recover from my injuries. Not only did she provide excellent massages, which relieved the pain, she also recommends exercises and other treatments in an effort to provide a wholistic approach to getting well. I am happy to say that she has been a key individual in helping me get to a place where I am largely living without pain. I would highly recommend her as a therapist.”
