Massage Therapy  

Massage Therapy involves any hands-on activity for the purpose of bringing about changes in health.  Therapeutic massage addresses issues that are of concern to the client where as massage for relaxation focuses on reduction of stress (physical, mental, emotional).  Most massage is done directly on the skin, although it can also be done through clothing.  A massage lotion is usually applied to help keep the skin soft and allow the therapist’s hands to move smoothly.  A massage oil is also available for the same purpose. 

 

Some of the benefits of receiving massage include improved muscle flexibility, relaxation, elimination of toxins, reduced muscle soreness, and improved mental and emotional well-being.
