Massage helps the body recover after physical exertion, heal after injuries and get into better shape for movement. We offer general massage, local area massage and manual therapy.
Massage and manual therapy use techniques and methods developed for ameliorating functional impairments of the musculo-skeletal system. Such impairments are mainly manifested as muscle and joint pain, muscle stiffness or weakness. In addition to that, a joint may be obstructed, and in more serious cases a nerve may be pinched.
To determine the cause of the problem, the therapist uses manual mobility and strength tests, functional tests and palpation. Depending on the identified problem, the therapist uses techniques meant to alleviate pain and improve muscle balance and joint mobility.
