What Is Massage Therapy?
Massage can be much more than the manipulation of muscles or simple relaxation.
Ideally, it allows the body and spirit to return to a place where the body can heal itself.
Massage therapy offers a safe space where clarity and peace can once again enter our lives.
Touch is the core ingredient of massage therapy, combining science and art. A finely tuned sense of touch locates areas of tension and other soft-tissue problems and determines the right amount of pressure to apply to each person. Specific massage techniques soothe and relieve tight, sore muscle tissue. Touch also conveys a sense of caring, an essential factor in the healing relationship.
Healing is a process with many components. As with anything else, there is no "quick fix", and massage is no exception. Massage complements other traditional and alternative healing methods. 80% of diseases are stress-related and massage is an excellent stress remedy.
Massage significantly relieves symptoms and speeds recovery for many conditions. It is relatively non-invasive.
