The Benefits of Massage Therapy are vast! It can develop, maintain and rehabilitate or augment physical function. Often our lifestyle, long work hours or physically taxing job can stress our muscles, having a profound effect on our ability to stay active, participate fully in life or even make a living.

Massage (deep tissue or relaxation) can relieve or prevent dysfunction and pain. It relaxes tight and tense muscles, improves circulation and immune system function. It will also speed injury recovery time. As you enjoy regular Massage Therapy, your overall stress level will reduce. This is very important as stress is a leading cause of heart disease and high blood pressure.

Deep Tissue

Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy doesn’t just smell good. It’s benefits include stress relief, mood enhancement, balance and overall well-being. While it doesn’t “cure” major illnesses, it is effective at alleviating many of the discomforts associated with them.

Rock Tape
Rocktape has two major effects.  1 – relieves pressure from the free nerve endings in the tissues that are responsible for pain so it can immediatly reduce perceived pain, which then allows for better circulation to and from the area taped.  This reduces swelling at the site of an injury and contributes to the performance and recovery.  2 – the stimulation it provides to the variety of sensory nerves in the skin and underlying tissues.  Rocktape lifts and creates shear patterns in the skin and underlying tissues, altering the afferent signals going from the taped area to the brain.  This result changes the brain’s response to the incoming information, altering the efferent signals returning to the taped area.
