Massage therapy uses skilled manipulation of soft tissue, connective tissue, and body energy fields with the intention of improving health by affecting change in relaxation, circulation, nerve response and patterns of energy flow. Massge works on the soft tissue, muscles, tendons, and ligaments and also the organs themselves. Massage stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system, which runs parallel to the ciculatory system, improving the elimination of waste throughout the body.
Massage gives you an understanding of how we carry stress in our bodies. As the therapist stretches and loosens muscles to release tension, we are made aware of our holding patterns and can then work to change these negative cycles.
Massage therapy can be used for many conditions such as soft tissue injuries, lower back, neck and shoulder pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel, headaches, arthritis and fibromyalgia.
