Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy can help with a number of musculoskeletal conditions. Massage Therapy can help if you need to have a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension or attain relief from chronic pain. Massage Therapy treatments can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well being as well as your quality of life.

In the case of injury, either from trauma (e.g. accidents or surgery) or repetitive strain (e.g. poor posture, poor ergonomic work settings), a massage therapist can physically stretch muscles, increase range of motion of joints and help break down scar tissue. A massage therapist is trained to assess and treat the soft tissues of the human body.

Once a pattern of muscle dysfunction is assessed and treated, a massage therapist will provide advice and tools such as specific exercises and stretches to lessen or eliminate the soft tissue problem.

The following is a list of conditions for which massage therapy, when provided by a Registered Massage Therapist, can prove beneficial:

Back, leg, and neck pain
Muscle tension and spasm
Repetitive strain conditions
(i.e. carpal tunnel syndrome)
Post-surgical rehabilitation
