Massage therapy is instant gratification. As soon as your therapist applies pressure, your skin’s nerve cells tell your brain to release feel-good chemicals. These are called endorphins. That is only the beginning of the benefits of massage. Massage can reduce pain, anxiety and stress. Long term massage can increase blood circulation, lower blood pressure and improve sleep.

MASSAGE THERAPY SERVICES
Swedish Massage. This is the best-known type of a massage and it is primarily used to relax the entire body. Expect long gliding strokes to help increase blood flow.
Deep Tissue/Trigger Point. As opposed to Swedish massage, deep tissue requires more pressure for releasing pent-up tension and manipulating deeper layers of muscle tissues and fascia, the protective layer that surrounds muscles and joints.
Prenatal Massage. This is a massage therapy that is specialized for the needs of an expecting mother. The benefits can be physiological, emotional, and psychological. Prenatal massage is a gentle, non-invasive approach to address specific needs and discomfort a mother-to-be will appreciate.
