Massage Therapy is treatment given by stroking, kneading, and striking certain muscular parts of the body to improve sooth the nerves, and stimulate the digestive organs. Massage therapy constitutes a health care service for therapeutic purposes where manual techniques are applied and may include adjunctive therapies with the intention of positively affecting the health and well-being of the individual.
Massage Therapy benefits may include
- increase the circulation of blood and flow of lymph,
- help loosen contracted, shortened muscles,
- stimulate weak, flaccid muscles
- improve posture,
- promote movement,
- improve range of motion,
- and reduce spasticity
Other benefits of the service may include decreased contractures, prevention of decubitis, decreased muscle spasms, improvement of posture and balance, and reduced fatigue. Massage therapy may increase, or help sustain, an individual’s ability to be more independent in the performance of activities of daily living; thereby, decreasing dependency upon others to perform or assist with basic daily activities.
Our Massage Therapists are licensed within their home states.
Please note: Participants in Massage Therapy may be required to obtain a physician's orders.
