Why Massage?


Who benefits from massage therapy? You do!

Many already know that the benefits of massage therapy are vast. First of all, massage feels good! Massage can leave you feeling healthy and refreshed as it increases circulation, flushes toxins, and loosens and soothes tight muscles. Some massage modalities provide stress reduction while lowering blood pressure and bringing health and healing to body tissues. Massage promotes relaxation and healthy digestion. For many, massage can offer comfort, reduce or remove pain, and provide a sense of well being. But there is much more that massage is currently used to address.


Massage can be used to treat many conditions, including the following:


  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Whiplash
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Upper back and neck pain
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Sciatic pain
  • Muscle aches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Postural dysfunctions
  • Pain management
  • Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow
  • TMJD
  • Plantar Fascitiis

Athletes and other active people can also benefit from massage as it:

  • aids in quicker recovery from exertion by bringing health to taxed, overused, and tight muscles
  • increases muscle health for top performance
  • reduces post-exercise muscle aches
  • restores and promotes shoulder (rotator cuff) health for pitchers and other ball players
  • loosens IT Bands and maintains joint health
  • helps to provide lasting relief for stubborn and reoccurring injuries like groin pulls and hamstring injuries
  • relieves knee pain as muscle tightness can put undue pressure on the joint
  • aids in injury recovery by promoting circulation and reducing scar tissue in the injured area
  • reduces the need for pain medications that can have adverse affects on the body
  • addresses poor posture (like rounded shoulders) caused by imbalanced training

Seniors find massage beneficial as it helps them to

  • retain flexibility and joint mobility
  • maintain posture
  • reduce aches and pains
  • offers stress reduction and relaxation
  • improves circulation

Massage is also beneficial in injury and surgery recovery as it

  • reduces pain

  • reduces the formation of scar tissue and increases functionality of scar tissue
  • promotes healing
  • realigns old scar tissue, improving scar functionality
  • improves range of motion in injured and replaced joints
