Our first priority is you! We work hard to have exceptional therapists who are passionate about making people feel better. Let's face it, we lead hectic lives that include long computer sessions, sports or workout-related injuries, and accidents. These factors might lead to painful, tight muscles, bad posture, or lactic acid buildup in muscles. These sore spots can be relieved physically and mentally with massage therapy.
Massage therapy refers to the manual or mechanical or electrical manipulation of soft tissue for the aim of massaging the body. The phrase encompasses Swedish gymnastics, effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (percussion), compression, vibration, and friction. Use of oil, lubricant, salt glows, heat lamps, hot and cold packs, or tub, shower, jacuzzi, sauna, steam, or cabinet baths are all possible during massage therapy. When performed therapeutically, massage therapy is a type of healthcare service, and a doctor may refer a qualified massage therapist to do the procedure.
