What is Massage Therapy?

 

Massage therapy is the systematic manipulation of the soft tissue of the body. It can be described as applying different kinds of pressure to your muscles to increase health to help your body heal after injury or sickness. This form of holistic care is a balance of mind, body, and spirit. It focuses on all three components working together. We believe that promoting all three of them at the same time is the way to bring out the optimum benefits.
