WHAT IS MASSAGE THERAPY?

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy uses a variety of hands on techniques to support the growth of natural health and wellness. With hundreds of years of evidence and research behind many of these practices, their benefits have been proven over time. Massage therapy is useful during rehabilitation after an injury, prevention of aches and pains, and for general relaxation and stress reduction.
