Massage therapy provides relief of soft tissue tightness and pain that can accompany a variety of injuries and conditions as well as the physical demands of daily life.
What does a Massage Therapist do?
A Massage Therapist manipulates soft tissues and joints using touch to encourage relaxation, improve circulation, speed healing and minimize recovery time from pain and injury.
