Massage Therapy has been used for thousands of years and is no longer considered an indulgence but rather a valuable tool for treatment of injury, increasing health and overall wellness. Massage has proven beneficial in treating chronic conditions and injuries. Our massage therapists have had great success in relieving the symptoms of back pain, sports injuries, tendonitis, headaches & migraines, muscular sprain/strain and repetitive strain injury (ITB syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome).
Some benefits of massage include:
- Relaxes and softens tired, overused and injured muscles.
- Improves circulation.
- Increases the release of endorphins helping ease pain.
- Facilitates relaxation.
- Improves movement and increases range of motion and flexibility.
- Reduces stress by lowering the levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) released
