What Is a Therapeutic Massage?
In general, a therapeutic massage helps to release chronic or acute tension and tightness by relaxing your muscles and helping to relieve certain types of muscle, ligament, or joint pains. If you have been experiencing pain from a chronic condition or a recent injury, therapeutic massage is also a great technique to use in conjunction with other non-invasive treatments, such as chiropractic services or physiotherapy. By focusing on your specific problem areas, therapeutic massage can be a great way to facilitate the healing process and help to speed up recovery.

Who Should Get a Therapeutic Massage?
A therapeutic massage can be beneficial for those who are experiencing (or are at risk for experiencing) muscle, joint, or ligament problems. Many people who play sports, sit or stand for long periods of time, or enjoy an active lifestyle, choose to have regular therapeutic massages in order to prevent injuries and keep their muscles tension free.
During your massage appointment, your licensed massage therapist can explain the different techniques that we offer and help you to decide which style is right for you.
