Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic Massage

therapeutic-massageMassage is one of the oldest healing arts: Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use; the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems.

Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. And, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.

Understanding the Difference

What separates our massage therapy treatment from spas, home treatments, and other massage centers is that our licensed massage therapist is specially trained and works in conjunction with our overall health rebuilding program.  The neuromuscular massage therapy the therapist delivers increases local physiological reflex effects by increasing blood circulation, promoting lymphatic drainage, aiding in the development of muscle and connective tissue reconstruction, function, and movement while decreasing scar tissue formation and adhesions; as compared to a spa oriented massage of light relaxing strokes which elicit a short term relaxation reflex in large surface muscles.
