Massage therapy

Massage therapy is a hands-on practice that involves manipulating muscles, soft tissues, and ligaments to enhance a person's well-being. Through various techniques, the goal is to alleviate tension, reduce pain, and promote relaxation. Beyond its physical benefits, massage therapy often contributes to stress reduction, improved circulation, and increased flexibility, making it a holistic approach to supporting both physical and mental health.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes. The five basic strokes are gliding, kneading, rhythmic tapping, friction and vibration/shaking.  Swedish massage reduces pain and joint stiffness, and it improves function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee over a period of eight weeks.  It has also been shown to be helpful in individuals with poor circulation.

Prenatal
