About Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance health, and well being. It relieves muscle tension and pain, increases flexibility and mobility, and helps clear lactic acid and other waste, resulting in reduced pain and stiffness in muscles and joints. The nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems also benefit from the therapeutic effects of massage.
