What Is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of the body’s soft tissue structures, through a variety of techniques ranging from relaxing to rehabilitative. The soft tissues include muscle, skin, tendons, fascia, ligaments and joint capsules.

 

With Massage Therapy the soft tissue’s function, flexibility and overall circulation increases. Through relaxing or stimulating techniques, helping you to achieve an overall feeling of well-being is your Massage Therapist’s primary goal.
