Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic Massage is a hands-on ancient healing art that systemically manipulates the body’s skin, muscles, and connective tissue to release tension, aid in the healing process, and promote relaxation and well-being. The massage therapist applies various massage techniques and varying degrees of pressure to attain therapeutic benefit. Massage can be received lying down on a massage table or sitting in a massage chair. The recipient may be fully or partially unclothed while always respectfully covered by sheets during the treatment.
