Massage Therapy is an essential part of an integrative approach to healthcare. Acupuncture can often work miracles for aches and pains, but there are also times when soft tissue work is key to complete relief of such conditions. Acupuncture relieves inflammation. Massage relieves spasms.

Massage is viewed by many people as a luxury when in fact it is often a medical necessity. Compared to massage, prescription muscle relaxants are quite ineffective. A chemical ingested to slightly lower overall muscle tone is no match for this massage practitioner who knows exactly how to find specific areas of tension and wring them free of pain. Often with neck and back pain, stress is a huge component. A full body massage is able to relax the enitire body to the point where specific areas of pain start to release even before work is begun on them. Once overall stress is reduced and tension is eliminated, the body’s energy flows freely and surely radiant health will follow. For these reasons we recommend massage in conjunction with acupuncture as part of a pain management program.

Please schedule an appointment today to ease your pains or relax the day away.
