chiropractic massage therapyWhat is Massage Therapy?

Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body – the muscles, tendons and ligaments – to relieve pain, help relax muscle tension, relieve stress and improve blood circulation.  Massage is a beneficial therapy which can enhance your health and well-being.

Massage helps increase your awareness of the areas in your body where tension is stored, and of how it feels to relax those areas.  Whether you are suffering from chronic pain, muscle aches, tension or stress, massage therapy can help to facilitate a more relaxed and healthy state of being.
