Massage Therapy is a hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. It is also an alternative health option to help alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular overuse and many chronic pain syndromes. It can also greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning, if employed early enough after accidents involving trauma and injury. Massage therapy can also help to promote self awareness.

A massage therapist moves the soft tissues in your body, using their hands, arms, and even elbows. Massage affects your entire body. It increases blood flow and strengthens your circulatory system, improves your muscular and skeletal systems, and balances your nervous system.

Many people use massage therapy to treat common conditions, such as headaches, insomnia, minor aches and pains, allergies, and the flu. But massage may also help more-serious conditions, including asthma, digestive problems, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
