Relief from pain and muscle tension
What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is a hands-on treatment for the soft tissues in the body, such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These tissues can become stiff for a variety of reasons, and cause pain as well as movement impairments. Massage therapy is an effective way to help address muscle pain and improve mobility by acting on the muscular, neurological, circulatory and lymphatic systems in the body. Massage therapy can also have a relaxing affect and help with stress management.
