BENEFITS OF MASSAGE


Therapeutic massage is an important part of your health and wellness plan. It can help you when you are injured, stressed, in chronic pain, or simply in need of a little relaxation & balance. Ongoing massage therapy can help you achieve a preventative approach to your health & well-being. 

 Today massage is thought of as a holistic therapy that complements medical treatment. Physicians across Canada recommend therapeutic massage to help decrease pain, improve range of motion, improve mood, aid in the circulation of blood and lymph flow, reduce muscle and joint soreness and improve sleep. Massage techniques most commonly include pressure and compression, kneading, frictioning and mobilizing to improve the health and condition of the muscles, tendons, skin, fascia or connective tissue of the body. I will carefully customize a massage to best suit your needs.
