Why massage therapy?
The interest in massage therapy has steadily
increased in the last 20 years. A healing art
that's been around since ancient times, massage
therapy offers an unlimited number of benefits
that can touch each person individually.
Massage therapy provides numerous therapeutic
benefits for health, fitness and mental
well-being. Massage helps improve the body's
circulation, increases blood and lymph flow,
stimulates the nervous system and affects internal
organs as well as all of the muscles.

the manipulation of soft tissues, positively affecting
and improving health and well-being. There are many
styles of massage, including: Bodywork, Shiatsu,
Reflexology, Neuromuscular, Esalen (Swedish), Deep
Tissue, Circulatory, Sports and Cranial-Sacral.
Because there are so many different styles of massage
it's important to find the
that offers the style that best fits your needs, in
order for you to get the most from your session.
Massage therapy can relieve muscle tension, strain,
soreness and strain, as well as insomnia, arthritis,
bursitis, headaches, digestive problems, stress,
anxiety, depression and much more.
Not only does massage feel good, help you relax,

it can also enhance your overall health and well-being.
Therapeutic massage may not be appropriate for
some individuals. It's always important to consult
with your doctor before you receive a massage,
