Massage Therapy is a "hands-on" technique in which muscles and other soft tissues of the body are manipulated to improve health and well-being. Massage Therapy has a wide range of benefits and helps with many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, depression, and more.
Massage Therapy also taps into our Parasympathetic Nervous System, which controls relaxation and digestion, thus stimulating serotonin & dopamine. By releasing the tension that has built up from everyday living, massage therapy promotes relaxation and helps to relieve stress.

What kind of Massage Therapy should I get?
Our Massage Therapist integrates multiple techniques to provide the ultimate massage therapy experience. After learning about your body’s issues, Melissa customizes the massage therapy session to your specific needs.
How will I feel after the Massage Therapy Session?
Most people feel very relaxed after a massage therapy session. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of deep relaxation, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness and greater productivity. Since toxins are released from soft tissues during a massage, you should drink plenty of water following the massage therapy.
