One of the oldest healing arts, Massage Therapy is the hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body which include the muscles, connective tissue (ligaments and tendons) and joints. Widely accepted as part of many physical rehabilitation programs, this therapy can be beneficial in the prevention and treatment of many chronic and acute health problems.
Massage Therapy treats problem-specific areas as well as the whole metabolism, by normalizing the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular and nervous system. By strengthening and toning the entire body mechanism, regular massage can help you prevent unnecessary strains and injuries. Massage Therapy improves circulation to various tissue and organs and can stimulate or calm the nervous system, helping to reduce fatigue and replenish energy.

The effects of massage are cumulative and a course of massage treatments will bring the most benefits.
