Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic Massage works by manipulating and soothing the soft tissue (muscle and connective tissue) of the body by using various gentle techniques.  This tissue manipulation assists in promoting relaxation and well being by releasing muscle tension (tight spots) and pain removal.

 

The body has an amazing ability to heal itself, and massage is able to assist this process.

Massage for Chronic Pain and Disability
Massage has many positive benefits for you if you have Chronic Pain or Disability.
Chronic pain can cause a lot of stress both mentally and physically in the body due to inflammation, pain and discomfort.  Massage is well known for  reducing muscle tightness and soreness within your body as well as increasing circulation, improving sleep and minimizing the effects of inflammation and reducing pain and stress.  
People in wheelchairs or with limited mobility also benefit from massage as the muscles are weak and tight due to inactivity and the blood flow is less due to muscles and limbs not being as active.   Massage will help by relaxing the overused muscles, improve circulation to the lesser used muscles and limbs, improve mobility and range of motion, reduce pain, reduce stress and stimulate weakened muscles.  Massage will not strengthen weakened muscles but combined with complimentary exercise program will improve the strength of muscles and improve general daily living.
