Massage Therapy

Massage is the oldest known healing art.  By using therapeutic touch through massage, a registered massage therapist can effectively reduce the pain caused by a headache or sprain and strains caused by a car accident or sports related injury.  A massage can help reduce chronic and acute stress and allow you to feel relaxed which causes the body to release endorphin hormones that relieve pain and muscular tension.
