Therapeutic Techniques for Rehabilitation & Relaxation
Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues in the body to alleviate pain, stiffness, and discomfort. Massage therapy helps relieve pain associated with overuse of muscles, injury, and chronic pain conditions.
Massage therapy uses techniques that focus on your muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joints to optimize your health and well-being. Your massage therapist will use systematic methods based on physiology to relieve and prevent stress on the mind and body.
On your first visit, you will be met by our friendly support staff who will help you with filling out forms, answer any questions and help with anything else you need. You will then meet with the practitioner to discuss your specific concerns and health history.
Assessment & Recommendation for Care
Your practitioner will discuss your specific needs, present your options, suggest a treatment plan, and discuss the benefits and any risks associated with the recommended treatment. Treatment plans are specific to each patient.
