Relieves Pain

One of the most common reasons people pursue massage is for lower back and neck pain, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. Weekly sessions of massage therapy can greatly reduce back and neck pain.

Our massage therapist will treat you based on your body’s pain patterns, but will also make an assessment of how your muscle tension is producing twists or other alignment problems.

Improves Flexibility and Full Range of Motion

Following a musculoskeletal injury, our bodies may be stiff, sore or unable to move naturally. Massage therapy is a beneficial treatment for maintaining and improving flexibility and motion.

By working on muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, and joints, regular massage can improve your flexibility and range of motion, keeping your joints more fluid and making them less injury prone

Centers Your Mind

Healing is as mental as it is physical. Stress causes our blood pressure to rise and puts our body on high alert. During a massage, our blood pressure levels and the levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, drop as endorphin levels rise. Endorphins are natural painkillers and mood enhancers, which help our patients to feel calm, centered and at peace after a session.
