Massage Therapy & Body Work

Massage is one of the oldest forms of therapy and is a system of stroking, pressing and kneading different areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate, and tone the body. Bodywork can involve a variety of methods for bringing relief from pain and improving alignment in the body. Swedish massage is the foundation of most massage practiced in the United States, which focuses on gentle relaxation. Other types of massage and bodywork are more vigorous, involve deeper, more specific pressure or more movement and active participation from the recipient. One of the greatest benefits of massage is the stimulation of the circulatory and lymphatic system, which are the systems which move blood and lymph through the body. Improving the movement of these fluids increases the oxygen supplied to the tissues throughout the body and also improves the elimination of wastes in the tissues.

The aspect of massage that distinguishes it from other forms of therapy is the healing power of touch, which studies have proven is a vital component in maintaining optimal health. Massage can be an important part of a pain management program or recovery from illness or injury. Many people receive massage on a regular basis to reduce their stress level, which in turn improves their quality of life and decreases their incidence of illness, headaches and improves their sleep patterns. Massage therapy benefits people of all ages and from all walks of life.
