Massage Therapy acts directly upon the muscular and circulatory systems to rehabilitate physical injuries and improve health. Massage therapy can positively affect muscle tension, joint mobility, pain perception, circulation and lymphatic drainage and even your frame of mind.
Relax… that may be the most common reason. In fact, you may even find that you leave relaxed after a massage no matter why you had one. Here are some of the other common ways our patients use massage therapy:
Low Back Pain
Massage Therapy plays a key role in low back pain rehabilitation by decreasing muscle spasm and pain, restoring pain-free range of motion, correcting muscle imbalances and eliminating soreness.
While whiplash strikes in the neck, it also affects muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, joints, causing an overall discomfort. Massage Therapy treatments alleviate pain and restore movement and function to get Whiplash patients moving again.

Posture, Ergonomics and Every Day Life
Often, what people do at work or home can lead to pain, injuries and illness. Lifting, reaching or repeating movements may cause strain or injury. Problems may arise suddenly or gradually over a period of weeks, months and even years and shouldn’t be ignored. Common warning signs are numbness, tingling, pain, decreased range of motion and headaches. Conditions such as tendonitis, bursitis or carpal tunnel syndrome may develop if neglected, affecting your ability to work or do your simple daily activities. We will develop unique treatment programs depending on your problem.
