Massage has many therapeutic benefits including:
Inflammatory Response – massage activates a release of the body’s own anti-inflammatory agents.
Tissue Repair – massage slows the formation of scar tissue and keeps scar tissue pliable when it does form.
Pain – massage may help reduce the need for pain medication.
Impingement Syndrome – massage softens and stretches connective tissue that may be impinging on nerves. Massage also normalizes muscle tension patterns, restoring a more normal resting length to shortened muscles to reduce pressure on nerves. Effective on the Cervical Plexus, the Brachial Plexus, the Lumbar Plexus and the Sacral Plexus.
Psychological Dysfunctions – Massage has a strong physiologic effect as well as a physical influence on mental states through the Autonomic Nervous System. Massage is soothing of any ANS hyperactivity and provides a sense of inner balance. Suitable for Trauma, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Pain and fatigue syndromes, Anxiety and Depressive Disorders, and Stress Related Illness.
Fees for a 1 hr session range from $70 – $85 depending on the therapist.
