Do you feel stressed right now? Are your shoulders tense? Is there a kink in your neck? Or has your sleep been “off” lately?
One of the best things you can do to improve your overall health involves getting regular massages. Massage is increasingly offered alongside standard medical care as an effective way to help you relieve stress and muscle tension, calm anxiety, reduce pain and recover from sports injuries.
Left unchecked, chronic stress and tension can contribute to a host of chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, chronic pain and debilitating headaches. A calm mind and relaxed body promote your natural healing abilities. Massage is also used as a stand-alone treatment for people who want to proactively help their bodies unwind and recover from daily, cumulative stressors.
Our certified massage therapists are trained to listen to your needs and design a massage that addresses your specific patterns of tension and stress. As a result, you get personalized care and establish a rapport with your therapist that builds trust and gets you the results you are after. See the types of massage offered by our therapists below.

- DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MEDICAL AND SPA MASSAGE
For anyone who hasn’t experienced a professional massage before — or even for those who have — there can be some misconceptions about what your massage is really doing for your health. A professional massage is more than just “treating yourself” or “taking time to relax,” especially when you consider the potential health benefits. How can medical massage benefit you?
Medical massage focuses on muscle health and recovery. Other benefits include managing pain, improving circulation, relieving nerve compression, improving digestion, increasing flexibility and treating many other health care-related concerns.
Medical massage uses a professionally certified massage therapist. Therapists take time to find out why you are seeking a massage and use their knowledge of the musculoskeletal system, as well as other systems, to find the right therapy for you.
Medical massage is goal oriented. Massage therapists will make sure that you reach your health goals while still providing you with everything you love about a spa massage.
Following the appointment, therapists will give you a targeted plan of what massage style is right for you and a suggestion of a series of timed visits that would be beneficial to reaching your health goals.
With medical massage, you won’t find upcharges and tips are not accepted. Medical massage offers a professional service to patients at a flat rate.
Whether you are coming in to treat chronic back pain, recover from an accident or sporting event, or just because you want to relax, medical massage does it all!
