Massage Therapy / Infant Massage
Massage Therapy is the manipulation of soft-tissues of the body. It helps to ease stress and muscular tension; relieve pain from injuries; and speed healing from certain acute and chronic conditions. In some cases, massage can reduce or even eliminate the need for medication or surgery and is effective for all ages.
How does Massage Therapy work?
On your first visit, your massage therapist will ask you about your medical history, your current physical condition and review any referring practitioner's recommendations. Your massage therapist will then assess your problem area using range of motion, orthopedic testing, and any pain complaints you may be experiencing to help determine the best approach for your treatments.
Based on this assessment, your massage therapist will decide on a personalized plan that will focus on your specific health and wellness requirements. The appropriate frequency, duration and number of massage sessions for you will depend on your condition, its severity and how long you have had it, as well as your general health.
