What is Massage Therapy?
Powerful, therapeutic touch
Massage therapy is the therapeutic manipulation of soft tissue, including muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and joints.
Massage therapy aims to restore integrity and alignment to the body in order to provide pain relief, decrease stress, and improve mobility.
The Principles of Massage Therapy
Circulation of Blood
Healthy blood circulation ensures the delivery of important nutrients.
Movement of Lymphatic Fluid
Lymphatic drainage removes excess fluid, filters lymph and blood, and supports the immune system.
Movement of Toxins
Through the movement of blood and lymphatic fluid, the removal of waste and toxins is supported.
Release of Tension
Hands on manipulation facilitates the lengthening and relaxation of soft tissue.
Structure of Function Are Interdependent
The integrity and alignment of soft tissue affects how well our body functions.
