Massage Therapy is the manual manipulation of soft tissue and joints to achieve balance and health. It promotes maximum performance for competition, allows for a higher level of recovery after injury or activity and is very effective in controlling acute and chronic pain. Massage Therapy uses the knowledge of anatomy, physiology and an understanding of the interaction between the body, mind and spirit. A registered massage therapist focuses on the normalization of the soft tissues affected by stress, injury and illness through the use of manual techniques that encourages the body’s own healing processes to act.
