Massage Therapy TeamTechniques and Therapy

Massage therapy is one of the oldest methods of healing, as the practice of therapeutic massage can be traced back nearly 4,000 years.  The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function or relieve pain (Massage Therapy Act, 1991).  It is widely accepted and effective treatment for decreasing muscle pain and stiffness, reducing stress, and for assisting in rehabilitation and postural alignment.

Massage therapists use a variety of techniques to improve the health and condition of the muscles, tendons, joints, skin, fascia or connective tissue of the body.  Massage therapy treatments have a therapeutic effect on the body which optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous, and circulatory systems.
