Why Massage?

Why massage therapy?

There’s no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (indulgent, revitalizing, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a lavish treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful tool in your self-care routine.

Today the benefits of massage are varied and extensive.  As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions.  And, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.
