What Is Massage Therapy?
“Massage therapy is the assessment of soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate physical function, or relieve pain.”By using therapeutic techniques and complementary modalities, our massage therapists can effectively reduce pain caused by injuries, headaches, car accidents, and other disorders.
