Our two massage therapists target issues that are muscular in nature. Muscle spasms and overworked areas of tension can benefit as well as pulled or strained muscles. Massage therapy isn’t just a pampering, luxury treatment. It has legitimate restorative properties which are effective in aiding in pain management and recovery. Clinical therapeutic massage can also affect the nervous system through the manipulation of soft tissue. The top layers of muscles benefit directly from applied massage because massage encourages the free flow of fluids.
Unlike chiropractors, massage therapists are not licensed to diagnose or treat conditions. Therapists are not licensed to manipulate or adjust the spine or other joints, nor can they prescribe medication. Massage therapists can, however, suggest holistic remedies in conjunction with massage therapy.
