Massage Therapy is an ancient healing art with scientifically based Therapeutic Effects. Throughout the centuries, the healing powers of massage have been sought to promote relaxation and balance. Gentle kneading and manipulation of the soft tissue affects circulation of blood flow. This increase in blood carries oxygen and nutrition to areas of the body. Toxins are released from dormant tissues and the nervous system is soothed. Like a breath of fresh air your body responds with a new awareness.
Our massage therapists offer several types of massages from injury treatment to relaxation.
We offer massage therapy Monday through Saturday. We accept most insurance for massage as well as offer flexible payment options.
