Massage is a manipulative therapy of the soft tissues of the body, engaging the nervous system and circulatory system to help free restrictions, decrease pain and increase range of motion. Through treatment the nervous system settles and people are able to experience a centering of themselves in relation to their lives.
Massage lotion or gel is used on the skin to allow for a smooth contact in applying massage techniques such as effleurage, petrissage, static thumb, finger, or palmar pressure, fingertip stroking, palmar wringing, skin rolling, fascial stretching and joint mobilization. Other techniques used may include Craniosacral Therapy, Muscle Energy Technique, Strain Counterstrain, and unwinding.
Massage Therapy is helpful in treating acute and chronic conditions of the musculoskeletal and fascial systems of the body. Consent is actively engaged as pressure is accommodated for individual needs.
