Massage Therapy

Come relax, unwind, and see what a powerful tool massage can be to help you take charge of your health and well-being.

Massage is generally considered part of complementary and integrative medicine. Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:

* Anxiety

* Digestive Disorders

* Fibromyalgia

* Headaches

* Insomnia related to stress

* Myofascial pain syndrome

* Soft tissue strains or injuries

* Sports injuries

* Temporomandibular joint pain

Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort, relaxation, and connection.
