Therapeutic Massage

Does pain or restricted movement keep you from living the life you want? Sports injuries, household accidents, repetitive actions on the job, and tension from everyday stress can cause problems that too often take up permanent residence in our bodies.

Massage can help
Massage is a gentle therapy that can relieve pain and, in combination with medical attention, help heal certain conditions and help prevent their return. In some cases, massage can reduce or even eliminate the need for medication or surgery.

Learning how to relax
Relaxation is a skill that can be learned. Through massage, you experience the feeling of deep relaxation, making it easier to consciously recreate that state in your daily life.

Massage also focuses your awareness on sensations in your body, which can help you become aware of areas where you store tension. This awareness can help you recognize early warning signs as they happen, such as a stomach ache or shoulder pain. You can then act to take control of both your situation and your response to it.

Support for healthful change
Massage is something good you can do for yourself that requires no extensive planning or physical exertion. As you take care of yourself in this simple way, you may find yourself developing the energy and inclination to pursue other healthful activites such as exercise, good nutrition, or spending time with family and friends.
