Massage Therapy:


A massage is the treatment of superficial parts of the body by using manual rubbing, stroking, kneading or slapping actions.  Massages provide many physiological benefits.  This includes improving circulation, boosting immune function, reducing muscular tension and spasm, and helping the body rid itself of toxins.  In addition, massage helps to release endorphins, our body's own natural pain relieving agents.  Massage helps to correct damaged muscles, softens hard fibrous muscles, and assists in separating adherent fibers.  Ultimately, this aids in the stabilization of the spine and increases the benefits of chiropractic adjustments.  Therapeutic massage can be an important component of your health maintenance and wellness plan.

Therapeutic massage is an age-old remedy and health practice that is found in all major civilizations past and present.  From the ancient Greeks and Roman baths to modern day spas and health clubs, massage has been recognized for its health enhancing effects.  Today the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching.  As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many acute and chronic conditions, including neck and back pain, headaches, arthritis, bursitis, poor circulation, stress, anxiety, and more.  Therapeutic massage helps to break muscle tension through touch.  Squeezing, stretching and kneading release tight muscles and natural endorphins resulting in decreased pain, decreased heart rate, and an inner sense of calm.
