Holistic Massage Therapy

Why would you need a massage? 

Most of us live in a high stress and demanding world nowadays.  We contract our skeletal muscles millions of times per week.  You may be using different muscle groups depending on your lifestyle or career.  Most of us feel muscle tension in the upper back or neck due to chronic sitting positions required by our daily work routines.  Some of us exercise our muscles at the gym that form “knots”.  These so called “knots” are called myofascial adhesions.   Dehydration or over training can also contribute to myofascial adhesions.  Muscle contraction produces a biproduct called lactic acid which can cause moderate to severe pain if it doesn’t get processed properly.  If the muscle continues this cycle of being choked off from oxygenated blood it will eventually become very tender to touch and it could hinder movement of a particular region.  Manual myofascial release techniques are performed by a licensed massage therapist to restore mobility and reduce tension.  A trained massage therapist will be able to identify common areas of involvement and would address the issues.  Most individuals improve in as little as one session.  Here are some health benefits of routine massage therapy.

  • Reduce muscle tension and pain.
  • Speeds up healing from soft tissue injuries.
  • Relieves Stress.
  • Improves joint mobility.
  • Enhances circulation and lymphatic drainage.
  • Improves sleep quality.
  • Improves immune function and mental alertness.

If you suffer with any of these symptoms, please give us a call and schedule your massage.
