Massage Therapy is a hands-on, holistic method of health care which relieves fatigue, reduces tension, calms the nervous system, and promotes a sense of relaxation and renewed energy.
The practice of massage therapy is recognized as one of the oldest methods of healing, with references in medical texts nearly 4,000 years old. It is a widely accepted and effective treatment for reducing stress, decreasing muscle pain and stiffness, and for aiding in rehabilitation and postural realignment.
Massage therapy is a drug-free approach to treating acute and chronic pain as well as stress-related tension. It can also be an important part of a preventative maintenance program.
A Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) treats specific physical and medical conditions by relieving muscle tension, restoring muscle and postural balance, increasing circulation and improving tissue nutrition.
Massage therapy can be tremendously beneficial for people of all ages and conditions.
