Massage therapy is all about relaxing and releasing muscle tissues to facilitate increased blood flow,
increased lymph flow, and to create a lengthening of contracted muscles. This creates healthy tissues by changing the memory within muscle tissue and repatterning the affected structural changes that have occurred because of the dysfunction.

The benefits of massage are:
  • Alleviates pain and the anxiety associated with it.
  • Reduces scar tissue - including post surgical adhesions and swelling.
  • Increases joint flexibility.
  • Benefits many chronic conditions such as:
    - Low back pain
    - Arthritis - rheumatoid and osteo
    - Fatigue - including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia
    - Neck pain
    - Headaches - including some Migraines
    - TMJ
    - Shoulder pain - including Frozen Shoulder, and Rotator Cuff injuries
    - Elbow pain - including Tennis Elbow (Lateral epicondylitis) and Golfer's Elbow (Medial
      epicondylitis).
    - Hand pain - including overuse of computer keyboards.
    - Wrist pain - including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
    - Hip pain - including hip replacements.
    - Sciatica pain
    - Knee pain - including knee replacements
    - Ankle pain
    - Foot pain - Including Plantar Fascitis
  • Decreases blood pressure
  • Helps open lymph nodes and vessels - moving out metabolic wastes, which
    helps enhance the immune system.
  • Helps release metabolic wastes from contracted muscle tissues.
  • Relieves stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and
    illness, and enhances the quality of sleep.
  • Releases endorphins - the body's natural mood enhancer and painkiller.

The purpose of massage is to enhance the general health and well-being of the recipient. Massage does not include the diagnosis of a specific pathology, the prescription of drugs or controlled substances, spinal manipulation, or those acts of physical therapy that are outside the scope of massage therapy.
