Do massage treatments only focus on the neck and shoulders?
Massage treatments are effective for any group of muscles in the body. They provide relief if you have neck or back pain, but are just as effective in treating pain in your legs, feet, arms, head and other areas.
What are the advantages of massage therapy?
Loosening and relaxing tight muscles is certainly an important benefit of massage therapy, but it's not the only one. Massages trigger the release of endorphins, natural chemicals that reduce pain, lower stress, and improve your mood.

If your muscles hurt due to an injury, massage treatment may decrease the healing time. Gently stretching and kneading the muscles improves blood flow and enhances the transfer of oxygen into your body's cells. Massages also make it easier for your lymph system to remove waste products from your body.

After a massage, you may find that it's easier to move your muscles without pain and that you have an improved range of motion. Stress relief is an important benefit of massage. Anxiety and stress can increase your risk of developing many serious health problems, ranging from high blood pressure to heart disease to stroke. Regular massages can help you lower your stress level and reduce your risk of developing these issues.
Is massage right for me?

  • Whiplash
  • Neck and back pain
  • Sore, tight muscles
