Massage therapy involves the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body. It is a highly effective treatment for alleviating pain and discomfort associated with over-use of our bodies, chronic aches and pains, and releasing pent up stress. It also offers significant physiological effects on the circulatory, muscular, lymphatic, and nervous systems.
Conditions that respond well to massage therapy:
- Arthritis & tendonitis
- Physical stress
- Neck and shoulder tension
- Repetitive strain
- Emotional stress
- Muscle spasms
- Strains & sprains
- Pregnancy-related low back and pelvic discomfort
Most extended health benefit plans cover massage therapy. Check your plan to see if you are covered or if you require a doctor’s note before starting care.
